The Hardware
Raspberry Pi hardware commitment
Early ARM interest
Community interest in Pi
There are only 50 Raspberry Pi boards in existence - until Nov 2011 when the first 10 000 boards will be snapped up by developers. Puppy will be there, paws ready . . .
By 2013 we should have sufficient demand
for a puppy powered ARM tablet (see above) with smart memory material
or rubberized keyboard/cover/stand/grip/on switch
and e-ink touch screen
The design is open source incidentally
You saw it here first

Where are our Chinese capitalists?
Can this be built ethically?
(basic rights for the hardware builders)

News
T2 cross compiling
Woof to become ARM compatible
This changes everything. It means that PARM could use the Puppy scripts with T2, Slackware, Ubuntu, Debian or Mageia binaries.

The (very rough) Plan

I'm doing some porting work at the moment with the long-term goal of porting Puppy to any architecture, maybe I could test this on Slacko.

Task 1
Develop porting infrastructure
Get used to Puppy + Debian projects
Pussy
I'll release a small Linux OS for the raspberry, using the Debian that can be provided with it as a base, and make it as puppy like as I can... altho this isn't a puppy, it will give you all a guide

Use the new muli-arch Woof to build an Spup or Dpup
We only have to support broadcom multimedia on the first build
Once Puppy is solidly on Pi we will add drivers for other devices
Puppy forum specific advice
Join Raspberry Pi mailing list (top right)
Join Pi forum Pi thread
Join Raspberry_Pi on twitter for news as it happens

Task 2
Reconfigure working environment
boot to root
terminal
Rox
JWM

ash/bash script language
+ Xchat or link to meebo and Puppy IRC
gmail and twitter links

Task 3

second line icons
mtpaint or cut down version in igus version

draw = inkscape (full initially) or Xara
Browser (use existing Iceweasel to start)
