Puppy Project in Peril as Founder Retires

Filed under
Linux

It's been over a week since Barry Kauler announced his retirement (again) and the project's future is now very unclear. Saying Woof and Puppy are now in "maintenance mode," where essential fixes are made, Kauler stated no new features or releases will be planned. Instead, he'd like to develop for the Ubuntu phone.

In a blog post September 20, Kauler said, "I started the Puppy Linux project in 2003, so I have been at it for ten years. Enough, it is finally time to retire." His blog has been almost silent in recent months and speculation of Puppy's demise was already being whispered around water dishes.

Samsung’s mobile displays are the best in the world, many of its software additions have mass appeal, and its phones are always among the best available when it comes to performance. But where design, build quality and materials are concerned, Samsung has always been at the bottom of the pile. That changes in 2015, and the Galaxy S6 is our first look at the future of flagship Samsung phones. On the inside, the S6 is everything we have come to expect from the company’s premium smartphones. And on the outside, the Galaxy S6 is like nothing we have ever seen before from Samsung. Read more
