@ oui:-

It's like with most things in Linux; there's always lots of different ways of achieving the same outcome.

"Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose".....or words to that effect, n'est-ce pas?

It's why I like Linux so much.....because it's so versatile. You can write the most bit-perfect code, or you can throw together a quick'n'dirty, 'hacky' workaround.....and they'll both end up giving you the same result.

So which 'method' do you use, hmm? Confused

The one you're satisfied with, of course..... Very Happy Linux is far more of an individualist's OS than Windoze could ever hope to be ('cos Microsoft want to control it down to the last byte of code, yet at the same time they keep trying to make it an OS for 'everyman') - notwithstanding the efforts of certain organisations to make Linux a mirror image of Redmond's abomination (yes, I'm looking at you, Canonical).

And Puppy, as a 'hobbyist' distro, takes that 'individualism' just about as far as it possibly can. So we run as root. Big deal. So we don't use 'sudo', and log-in, and run separate user accounts. Hah. And we don't 'auto-update'. Who cares?

I think I'm probably correct in saying that while you certainly can't 'please all of the folk, all of the time', Puppy arguably manages to satisfy most folks, a majority of the time. And that's good enough for me.
