Stub - heavy development of this page to come
What are the proposed Puppi spec?
- Run in the 256MB ram of the Raspberry Pi at Puppy speed
- JWM - Joe's Window Manager and/or choice of window managers
- Rox File Manager (incidentally Rox was developed first on the ARM processor)
- Recognizable Puppy scripts
- Puppy mainstream programs
- Puppi Package Manager and/or Appet based on QuickPet/SlickPet
- Puppi Control Panel
- Puppi Soft Phone
- Puppi GROWL Security
- MoManager - create non-english Puppi
- Styling options from Saluki
- Puppi Cloud support, Meebo, Gmail, Yahoo, IRC etc as available in Slacko
Geany, Midori, Leafpad, Mtpaint, Xchat, Mhwaveedit, Transmission
Spec are likely to change during development
Let me try and put the whole Puppi, Raspberry Pi, PARM into context . . .
Puppi is part of a long term strategy to make Puppy available on next generation ARM tablets and future smart phones and other devices.
So for example the use of things such as touch screens, voice control and making use of Android or other plug in apps is eventually possible.
First however we have to work to a common goal and working for well documented, specific hardware - cheap enough for everyone to splash out. This has evolved into the Raspberry Pi commitment.
In 2013 we MAY be able to work to a common ready made Android/Smartphone tablet hardware device with worldwide availability.
At that time we can ask people to make a hardware commitment and pick up any strays on the way . . .
So back to [b]Raspberry Pi plan[/b]
We are not going for the best board
We are going for the cheapest, most widely available,
well documented and built to high engineering standards.
We are also right at the beginning of software development.
You will very quickly be aware of deficiencies in the recommended
Debian and Arch compiles - Yes they work . . . sort of.
Fortunately smart penguins are involved with Arch, Debian, kernel, individual programs and other upcoming efforts. Yeah! :)
For those testing, teaching, compiling, creating projects we want Puppy to offer the best base.
The Core Experience
- Small, fast, easy to use. Just works.
- Familiar to Puppy's using x86 computers
