Puppy Linux Gets a Serious Reaming on DistroWatch

DistroWatch takes it's own hits sometimes regarding it's rating systems, etc., but I'd hate to have my distro as the object of such an article as this.

I just read that article as well. Wow! not exactly a glowing endorsement is it? I have to agree with one of the points the author makes. The value of a distro is not just the raw code that gets set down to a disc, but the community of users, and developers who support it. It almost makes me want to lurk on the Puppy Linux forums and see what goes on.

Looks like "sour grapes" not particularly related to Puppy, but with the owner of the Puppy Forum.

hrsetrdr, I tend to agree with you. The poster did not seem to have any issues with the current version of Puppy Linux, but rather the way the forum was moderated.

I have Puppy in my collection of "live CDs," just in case it might prove to be useful some day. But I would never install it on a hard disk drive and use it like a regular distro since, with Puppy, you are always root.

Well, the article just shows how some pseudo-moderators manage to drive out productive members of the forum, just out of spite or envy. You know, power trips, we've seen that around different forums.
