Subject description: a blast from the past

This is a blast from the past. Back in 2009, I tested a heavily modified Puppy Linux edition called TeenPup, designed to be lean, frugal and yet rich in features and good looks. Well, at 700 MB compared to the standard 100 MB for the original distro, it kind of failed on the leanness front, but it did deliver a fairly pretty desktop, and more importantly, Magic Scripts.

The idea behind Magic Scripts was golden. The scripts were essentially a seemingly innocent collection of icons (scripts), but they would become active if you dragged and dropped multimedia files onto them. Then, depending on the selected script, the multimedia files would be processed and converted. Even in 2009, the scripts included several mobile/touch formats, iPod, you could also split videos, and there were roughly a dozen different options available.


Rather than manually opening media processing tools or using ffmpeg, which is a program for skilled nerds, you could drag ‘n’ drop music and videos clips and watch the magic happen. And it did happen. Again, much like Kaptan, the Magic Scripts seem to have vanished. In fact, worse than Kaptan. This was a true one-hit wonder. Along with this gutsy little distro, the scripts vanished and never came back. But they make a lot of sense, and also emphasize that it is possible to create simple, elegant solutions without going overboard. Alas, not replicated, for now.
