It seems to work fine, It did look as if my cpu gadget was maxing out, but when I changed its "time between updates" from 1 second to .5 second it went down to what it should have been. Could just be an error with the CPU gadget. But at .5 it works fine.

Don't get me wrong.

Congrats to the huge interest your Macpup has generated on Distrowatch.

I was using Quirky 013 for weeks and then changed to Quirky 021 and like that one because it has a working NVidia driver for my Desktop.

I like Puppeee for the Acer One though.

I have installed Macpup but don't use it.

What does it have that Quirky 021 or latest Lucid does not have?

I mean why should I use it. What is in it for me?

As I said. No criticism just me curious on why I should use it?
In what way is it better than what I use now? Quirky 021

I cant answer your questions , That 's stuff you have to decide for your self.

We dont make puppylinux. We Make it beautiful. Its our use of E17 and the customizing we do to it that makes us who we are. Macpup is fast and functional and looks amazing. That is why we have done so well at Distrowatch and done as well as we have in the linux world outside of this forum.

Congrats, runtt....it's great to see so much interest and i hope it hangs around for a while longer, in spite of big, fat *buntu..

Very Happy

A bit OT (apologies, runtt):
Hello nooby....i found Quirky 013 worked better than anything else i'd tried on a Mac desktop, which was a pleasant surprise, (although i've also had Macpup Foxy3 running on it), but most of the time i like to run the Mac as a Mac...my laptop is a different story, however - there are currently about 7 frugal installs of various Puppy derivs (including a couple of Macpups) and one full Puppy hdd install...i use them all at different times either because they have a purpose for me or just because i like them and feel like using them Wink

Everyone's needs are different though, so who can say categorically that one Pup is "better" than another? They're just personalised to suit the user's preferences, which makes for infinite choices...the beauty of Puppy altogether and half the fun..

So there you go - try as many as you like and stick with whichever works best for you....the rotation on my puptop is constantly changing Very Happy

Congrats to the rising interest. I guess it will benefit all the otehr puppies too. Smile

Thanks to Runt and russoodle.

Yes I havew frugal install of many many puppies now and sooner or later one of them will be the individial best for me.

But it is frustrating that I stull have not learn how to place Firefox outside of pupsave in a way that it save all the bookmarks and simplemail and such.
Each time I try a new puppie I have to start all over with xmarks and simplemail install and setting up and none of the emails I had before is there.

I am not on the needed level of remembering or figuring out how to do things.

So I kind of need a puppy that is taylormade for oldis with no brain for computing. Smile

Guys, don't let my grympy comments get to yopu. Continue the heads up and go at it. Smile

I am not sure about simple mail But You can customize your firefox.pet to include your bookmarks and themes . You could also copy /root/.mozilla somewhere and when you install firefox again copy that folder back into the new puppy and run it.

Beem and Puppyluvr described something similar but not exactly same as you do here.
I guess your description makes it included in the pupsave file while their description place it outside the save file so when you test next puppy q23 q24 q25 or lupu 115 116 117 and so on then none of them need to start from scratch FF and Opera and Chrome and Seamoneky all of them stay outside of pupsave and all keep their profiles and installed addons and whatever bookmark.

As it is now I have to start totally fresh each new puppy version. Very time consuming.

Edit.

I maybe have no way to really know but would not your Macpup be even more popular if you made it like I describe in the next revision.

Then each time those who prefer Macpup to the other puppies could retain all their individial preferences if they ever tested other puppies to compare.

you would be alone having a puppy derivative that was that versatile and flexible.
