A group of 'dogs' with smokey01 in the front-seat is now putting together a monthly newsletter covering stuff from the kennel.

There has been some discussion in the forum some time now, and the first edition is released as scheduled - the first in every month. Hopefully this project will end up as one of the major resources for us. Much is happening in the Puppy world, but until now we have missed a encompassing channel. If you are interesting in a collaborating project, please join these good guys. Else, enjoy reading.

Happy new year.

I recently posted a poll about bootloaders used in Puppy. I want to know which bootloader is most popular by user's vote. I already have a guess of what it is, but would like to confirm that with first hand data.

I plan to run the poll for 30 days, and although it's too early to tell, it seems that my guess is not too far off; and the reasons behind the popularity too.

What triggered me to do the poll is the suggestion from a few members of the community that Puppy implement a new bootloader. A suggestion is welcome, and new shiny thing that can do better is always exciting; but then we need data about what the user really needs. There is no need to supply a electric chainsaw if you need to trim some bush in your garden. Sure it can do the job too, but isn't a garden scissors a better tool?

Of course, it is also to inquire about what the users think about the new big wave that is coming (actually already came) - UEFI. Interestingly, so far I don't have anyone bringing up the topic yet (the puppy steward's post didn't count), as is either it doesn't matter, or it doesn't bother them.

Anyway, we'll see. I'll probably start discussion on that thread soon. 30 days seem to be abit too long.

"The conclusion"
I never have a doubt that grub4dos will take the crown. I summarised it here: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=896281#896281.
