The only thing I have found that seems to be wrong is your spelling of simplicity Wink
But maybe I am blind for other than orthographics... Rolling Eyes

What is supposed to be 'wrong'? You mean because it says based on Puppy in the title, but then it turns out it is based on LXPup?
Well, Puppy itself is always 'based' on something or other. So, Simplicity is Son of ..., son of ..., son of... ...

It is unusual that the developer (or developers) are not identified on the project website. The simplicitylinux.org website appears to be using a UK host. Is that a possible clue to the identity of the developer?

DistroWatch does not seems to bother which surprises me.
http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=simplicity
Their text says Updated june 27 2013

Simplicity Linux is a Puppy Linux derivative with Xfce as the default desktop environment. It comes in three editions: Netbook, Desktop and Media. The Netbook edition features cloud-based software, the Desktop flavour offers a collection of general-purpose software, and the Media variant is designed to provide "lounge" PC users with easy access to their media.

Usually they do tell name of developer and usually with text We are proud to present ...

So why is sneaky that silent about himself. Seems odd to me.

But if the developer is active here in the forum why does he not
share his intentions and so on like all the others do? Is that not odd?

simargl I find it remarkable too. Could it be that he actually paid for to get on DW? Money buys consent?
