QtPuppy (pronounced Cute Puppy)

After playing with all the currently available puppy sources over the last year, I have decided for a number
of reasons that for ease of build and "best-fit" that QtPuppy will be a wary / T2 based Version of Puppy.
It is designed to be a Developers Puppy, not a General users Puppy, therefore some things like menus will be
changed around!
The first Public Alpha Release will come out after Wary 5.2.2 is out.

Threads for QtPuppy can be found at Puppy Linux Help and murga-linux, both are monitored and responded too.

Vision for QtPuppy Version1

It will be designed to be based on a basic-bones version of wary5.2.2 plus Qt4-4.7.4.

The Development Versions will be coded warz522xx, while Release Versions will become warq522.x.x! In all cases, only those with even number endings can be considered to be Stable Versions for use!

In all cases it is planned to have something like the traditional Puppy screen layout available either via a Qt Window-manager/Desktop or by Puppy's JWM. It will not have a number of the general libraries and applications you are use to in Puppy, as the applications will be replaced by Qt4 equivalents as they are located, tested for stability and added to Qtpuppy, or developed from the ground up.

It will also have by default the Qt Design Package "Qt Creator" integrated into it so you can have a go at building your own ideas into an application. Qt Creator can also multi-Platform, so may be of use when we expand into other systems in the future.

Others like the popular openoffice.sts, etc. should be useable and loadable via bootmanager as long as the sts's are internally complete.

Most of the multiple programs that do the same thing will be missing. This is a common complaint now from those windows users thinking of trying a version of linux out now.

QtPuppy is planned to be modem, wifi, network and Satellite compatable.

QtPuppy will have some standard Printer drivers already installed.

I have allocated a fair proportion of my time for the rest of 2011 and all of 2012 to try to meet this concept!

Vision for QtPuppy Version2

Will split into two versions!

A User Workstation Version, primarily containing User Applications and the User Components of a small number
of Client/Server Applications. There will be a number of Linux / Windows Compatable Apps/Programs on the Screen so Windows users can feel some comfort (examples are Firefox and Eudora), as well as many linux style applications that are Qt4 based.
Group Screen icons and the initial desktop and menus will remind you of windows95 by using a Qt based desktop;


A LHMP Server Version with Qt4 plus addatives to allow client/server Applications, and maybe even Cloud style Applications to be used, but with no user-end components installed.
