I imagine most people come to the forum when they have a problem and then leave. That is no good measure of how many people enjoy using puppy. Just for the heck of it I dug an old dinosaur of a computer--4 gig hard drive 64 mb ram--and booted it with puppy, I was amazed that it nearly started up. It got to the tool bar before it died. With another hundred mb of ram it would probably work. I keep a pup cd and a 256 mb stick and a 2 gig stick with puppy on them. Never know when you will need it, and it is fun just to boot and mess around with. I think puppy has staying power and would not worry about its popularity.

I haven't read this topic. I just want to say I resent the title and the premise.

I don't think there was ever any statistic to support the premise that people were fleeing the kennels.

KBD47 :

If you had copied the main sfs file in lowercase to the hard drive,
it would have probably booted.

I always call it a cheat grugal.

Just like adding ram in a way.
It wouldn't be fast probably....but it would still be usable.

Example:

luci_528.sfs ... >> is Puppy lucid 5.28

pup-431.sfs ....>> Puppy 4.31
