I like the site and the pictures, especially Smile

Is the mini-PC still in the market in Europe? How much is it selling?

I guess the downloads can be used by English users, too...

Best news of the day - that and the new multisession iso (which seems to be progressing very well - excellent help with the whole process)

Klaus Knoppix was my first Linux hero (well him and Tux) and there seems a VERY healthy developer community in Germany. I also hear there are some smart programmers in India (most able to use English) and China will be ideal for Puppy.
Maybe Puppian will create a page in Mandarin . . . he is one busy Puppy . . . We even have a Vietnamese Puppy being created . . .

This is a great boost.

Yes, if you read older Mailinglist-archives, you will see many german programmers. Linux/UNIX has a long tradition in german Universities.

2-3 years ago I saw a worldmap with dots for every KDE-developper, about the half was located in Germany.
KDE was forced by german Suse-Linux (now Novell-Linux), while the english countries seem to prefer Gnome.


Concerning China I just found a report at pro-linux.de:
http://www.golden-penguin.org/en/01.html
http://lxer.com/module/newswire/view/45435/index.html

I think we can expect lots of new stuff from China, just imagine it has approx a quarter of the whole population of this planet...

That's great!
I can't read or speak much German.
You might wonder, with the name "Kauler", about my origin...
My dad's parents came from Estonia, some Kaulers there. I think there are a
heap of Kaulers in Germany too.

I have visited Germany, 30 years ago.
I do know how to ask a German person if they speak English!

I lived in Germany as a kid until I was seven. My Dad was the famous Uncle Harvey of Armed Forces TV in the mid 60's. I have to say that Christmas in Berlin was the best! I attend a German Church now, and one year the whole service was in German. An elderly man sung Silent Night and it was the best, much better than the English version. We still play our LP records of Christmas albums from there as kids. My parents taped us singing german songs with thick British accents what we once had. Cool

jcagle, whats your lastname?

Barry, Kauler sounds german, but is is not very common. I think I never heard that name before (but that has nothing to say).
Well, if you come to germany again within the next 30 years, I might help translating Wink

Ted:
"Uncle Harvey of Armed Forces TV in the mid 60's."

I don't know that, I was born in the late 60's
Funny to hear about german christmas-songs in America... (i don't sing at christmas ; )
Sometimes the "folcloristic" things of a country are most popular in foreign countries.
I just think of "bavarian" in short Leather-Trowsers... you often can see them in movies or Disney-World, but not in normal live in germany Wink

No, Cagle is not german.

Germans don't use le , but el.
They also use K more often than C.

Maybe your name was "americanized" when your forefathers left germany (if they came from there).
That happened quite often, i.e. "Georg" becomes "George", because it is easier to pronounce in english.

So it would be "Kagel". This sounds german, and I think I already heard that name. Wait, using google.de ... first entry is dorf-kagel.de (dorf is village):
http://www.google.de/search?hl=de&q=kagel&btnG=Suche&meta=

So yes, there might be a german background Smile
