If you want something like this to succeed you need to pick a specific hardware platform. It's simply not possible to get "just works" on all generic hardware with linux.

But if you pick something specific, you can make it work better than windows or whatever.

So the hardware you choose needs to be extremely appealing: ie, sexy form factor, and cheap price. Bonus points if it can't run windows very well or at all.

Think about the original EeePC.

Also the OpenPandora might be a good example, but I think it is still vaporware. Sad

ChromeOS and the google chromebook would be a third example.

I would say commercial production of disks is a waste of time and resources. Wary is a good choice for LTS, but it's a lousy name, promo-wise. The demand for desktop computers is greatly diminished in recent years, and to a lesser degree, the same for laptops. If you have a plan for promotion of Puppy, let's not be grandiose with objectives. We'd be lucky if a stable LTS version raised Puppy a couple places at DistroWatch. Don't forget the very controversial security issues re running as root. This is bound to be a big distraction from Puppy's merits.
