I'll countersign that. Smile All the best.

Thanks for everything!)

Kind of hate to hear this, Barry. But good luck on all your future endevors. I know myself (and my four older but goodie computers) will make it OK,--as I've discovered the joy of fooling with and running some of the older versions of Puppy (fun, fun). And I know there will be others who will continue with versions and derivitives of Puppy as well. We'll be fine, Barry. You go blast off into the future of doing your wonderous things. Good luck, and best wishes. Smile

I am not sure what the maintenance mode might be .

Time for woof version 3 I think ..

Cleaning up is traditionally women's work , man have to bring the junk outside ..

But write 150-200 scripts yourself ....

But he's an old man , so ..

~
Personally I guess when these new Xorg like Wayland are stable out , we can expect further Puppies .

I hope that he does not come back with weird code while other coordinators like Whodoo , ttuuxxx , iguleder or technosaurus are active thus screwing their progresses .

Barry, I hope you don't take my words too personal .

Karl

To Barry - many thanks for a great little distro!

To all the posters who have hinted, implied, or flat-out asserted that they could do a better job as Benevolent Puppy Dictator than the man himself, now is the time: PUT UP or SHUT UP!

Yes it is impossible to fill Barry's shoes one can only take what he has created and have fun with it and share anything useful. I'll miss his many innovations, he is leaving a great legacy which we enjoy today.

Barry has given so much. Thank you Barry you are a great bloke.

I think the thing for me about Puppy is even the older Puppies can still be updated and still be useful more than any other distro, there is a fantastic versatility about Puppy no other distro has in its small modular design and simplicity.

Another big thank you to Barry!
And also, a thank you to all of the developers of the various Puppy versions.

If Barry's Blog is still accessible, comments to him could be left there also.

A wave and thanks from this biker in the desert.

You made it easy for me to learn and use computers when I was lost.
Enjoy the sun and shade and breeze and smells and sounds.

You have been a asset to humanity. Happy Trails Barry from Rok.

As posted in a comment on his blog (made a new account, with a password I can't forget this time Wink )...

Quote:
Godspeed, Mr. Kauler Smile

Ten years is a long time to be doing something. Know that the 'something' you've been doing has touched many, many people in a very positive way. That makes you a *very* good person.

I only wish I was as good a person as you are... I ain't done squat because I have motivation problems and ADD (and a long, long list of other excuses Wink ).

Barry,

Maybe this time you can officially retire. Maybe consider the role of Chief Software Architect --like someone else who visits here on occasion. Wink That way, you could stay active in an advisory capacity only, while the rest of us carry on with making your vision a reality... Cool

In any event, I hope you come back to visit now and then. It might give us a needed boost from time to time to make your presence felt.... but above all else, enjoy your retirement! Smile

May there always be a bit of Puppy in all of us...

Cheers,
Monsie
