I'm guessing it's copyright issues.

That makes sense indeed.
What if Puppy has such too. I mean can some big firm
sue Barry for some minor infringe thing?

One understand why the "Open Sorfware" community
wants us to stay 100% claear but on the other hand
that makes us lose a lot of musc files that need "flash"?

@CLAM01

1) if i will want to do something against gowerment (or illegal) i will try to do it without use of internet (or everything that it is connected to it)

2) Barry K. doesn't have to describe on the blog every moment of his life (as i know his children live in Perth, if i will be old and retired it will be nice if my own children invite me to their house) - for me is good enough if his code is open

3) if you tried to search phrase "icanhazip" or "how to get public ip in linux console" via any search engine (eg. startpage.com, or duck) u will see that many people use this service and similar to do the same thing - check ip, eg.:

http://blog.strictly-software.com/2013/01/accessing-your-computers-external-ip.html

Do they all work for goverment? Please find me a site where somebody else is speaking about this service and have eveidence about bot-net.

4) freedesktop/X-serwer (there are more problem with it) isn't perfect solution i hope that Wyland will be better

I'm not speaking that against you, but c'mon, show some links that describe your concerns.

Wayland could never beta X. Why? Wayland will have less hardware work on it and we don't know what kind of backdoors might be in it. And probably Wayland will never be a stable system.

Add me to the list of happy LXLE users.

I've been running LXLE 12.04.4 on my old WinXP machine for a full month now, with great results. I chose a dual-boot setup because of a couple of hard-to-replace XP apps, but for the most part this is now an LXLE machine. Performance is crisp, and all the apps I need are there. My usage profile on this machine is web browsing, light word-processing, playing music and videos.

Dell Dimension 8300, 2.8 Ghz P4, 3 G ram
Nvidia Geforce FX 5200
120 GB drive split 80/40 WinXP/LXLE

And it's especially impressive, as this is their very first release. These guys did just a super job of it!

Finally had someone talk me into trying Windows 8 earlier today so I gave in and installed it.I still don't like it but a start menu replacement app makes it at least tolerable.
This old box now has Windows 8 Pro,Windows 7 Ultimate,LXLE, MX-14, Point Linux, PCLOS Gnome 2 and Sparkylinux as well as Slacko,FatDog,Lighthouse and other Puppy frugal installs.
I have to scroll through the Grub menu........ Laughing
