Subject description: Fatdog 5 years anniversary
 

Today, five years ago, the first Fatdog was released, here. Yes, it was that long ago.

Some trivia for Fatdog fans.
Do you know that:
1. the first ever Fatdog was just an SFS?
2. like any other puplets, Fatdog started life in 32-bit?
3. There was once a time that Fatdog was a "tpup" (as in T2-pup, like upup, dpup, etc)?

If you like to know more of Fatdog's history, read it here: http://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/web/history.html

Enjoy.

Incredible journey - Fatdog 111 and 112 - if I recall correctly, were my first encounter’s - they worked very well.

They recognised the wifi and dual threads of the atom processor in my Asus Eee 900, whilst most other puppies available then did not.

My nephew now has that machine and I am happily using Fatdog 64 620b3 on an E732 laptop (with a broken screen) and an old ProView LCD monitor.

Fantastic then - and even more so now - please keep them coming.

Many thanks & much appreciation for all you do - Ray

Ya know, I've never tried FatDog. I have tried LH64, once, and (IIRC) it wasn't terribly stable for me, for reasons I never could figure out.

But I've never tried FatDog.

I may have to change that Wink

For me it was more like 5 long hours. I tried it and a bug in it corrupted my Linux Mint partition. Never again.

Fatdog 111 had its OpenOffice sfs which I also labeled 111. It has kept Gimp among its applications and also the seagull desktop for a long time.

Fatdog64 521 enabled me in 2011 to play with the new AMD E350 APUs of my laptop.

Thanks, Fatdog team!

Thanks for the well wishes.

I think it is important to note that Fatdog will not be where it is today without the support and feedback from all its users, who painstakingly do test after test, release after release, and provide continuous comments and feedbacks --- even after getting burned like Terryphi (sorry! Embarassed).

So for all of you - thanks for being and bearing it with us all these time. The journey would haven't been the same without you.

Runtt21 - Congrats to your team too Smile Macpup is indeed a beautiful personification of Puppy .
We may work together to make a 64-bit Macpup someday Very Happy Three cheers for Macpup too ! Very Happy
