New owner for puppylinux.com

January 26, 2016 — BarryK
Back in late 2013 I stepped back from leadership of the Puppy Linux project, after over ten years. See blog posts:
http://bkhome.org/news/201606/playing-with-cross-compile-toolsets.html
http://bkhome.org/news/201311/puppy-linux-development.html

I did keep my hand-in with development of Quirky, a fork of Puppy Linux. Currently, I am not sure if I will do anything further with Quirky.

I kept ownership of the domain names puppylinux.com and puppylinux.org.

Until now. Ownership of puppylinux.com has been transferred to Michael Amadio, a guy who has proven his worth as a committed long-term developer of Puppy, and a good coordinator.

Mick has now pointed puppylinux.com to a new site:
http://puppylinux.com/

You can still access my old site, archived here:
http://barryk.org/puppylinux/

Mick also has control of the domain name registrar for puppylinux.org. Currently it points to a site created by Raffy.

So, that's it! Best wishes to all you guys carrying the Puppy flag forward. I intend to pop into the forum sometimes.

And maybe, just maybe, I see a possibility of playing with "puppy-fying" Ubuntu Touch. But, that is only a vague maybe.

Here is a forum thread where the new puppylinux.com is being discussed:
