Plan to write an app

I might release one more official Wary/Racy, and probably get the Raspberry Pi and Mele pups to release quality (or close to). After that I might not release any more puppies, but will keep working on Woof at a slow pace.

The reason is, I want a change, and want to work an a big application. I have got some ideas.

This means that someone in our community can take on the next Dpup, Upup, (or Arch-pup, Mageia-pup) as an "official" Puppy. I think that 01micko will be developing another Slacko, as time allows.

Thanks and good luck
Barry, I am sorry to hear that you want to move on from Racy and Wary because they are my favourite Puppies. I will certainly go on using both on different hardware.

However, I understand that we all need to move on to new intellectual challenges sometimes. Good luck in your new projects and thanks for the great OS you created.

I am sure that 01micko will be a safe pair of hands.

Thank you for making Puppy Linux!
Thank you for all your hard work! Puppy was the very first Linux OS that I could fully test, and even though I did test 700MB distros I like Puppy the most, it's fantastic. I will keep doing my small contribution to Puppy as much as I can, bringing this wonderful OS to the Hispanic (and possibly Portuguese-speaking) community. And of course, every time developers make puplets from the latest Woof they will have a great chance of expanding their number of users thanks to the language packs.

big app?
I'm interested to hear your ideas. Are you planning a new app, or take over an existing/abandoned project? If you are looking for a niche, Opera recently announced that they were deprecating unite, which IMHO is ahead of its time and has no single alternatives (neither open source or proprietary). It is one of those game changers that could replace Facebook, Google+ etc... with a "libre swarm" that gives netizens back control. (its pretty sad that eliminating ads cuts my page load times by 95-100%, yes 100% ... some well-designed pages just lock up "waiting on Google/Facebook/ad*.com")

before you go
Ive been trying for days to figure out why xorg.conf gets overwritten on every boot, is there a script I can edit to prevent this?
