Sorry, I hit the wrong button and did therefore a null-vote.
I would have voted for:
"Yes to at least one of the above or to something else, and it should be community-developed if the developers don't want to move it forward themselves".
With DSL 4 alpha and the 2.4.x kernel, I have problems with booting the DSL live-CD from an SATA-CD/DVD drive and also I do not get an automatic internet access with my new computer.
I assume, that my new hardware is not supported from the 2.4.x kernel.
The only thing I want CURRENTLY is a working DSL.
Does not matter if it is DSL or DSL-N.
But it should have a 2.6.x kernel.
The current DSL-N image is now nearly 1 year old.
My mouse does not function with DSL-N 0.1 RC4, but my mouse functions well with DSL 4 alpha, therefore I think there is no problem to fix this issue with a newer DSL-N version.
I know that there is high priority for DSL and the 2.4.x kernel, but I hope that I do not have to wait further months till there is a DSL/DSL-N that is working on newer computers.
Yes, there is Puppy and there is Slack etc etc ..
But also when they have common properties, there are differences.
I had a look to a previous version of Puppy.
I did not like the design of Puppy and some other things.
I hope to get a working DSL/DSL-N again.
I think all I need is a 2.6.x kernel
At the moment, DSL lovers with very new computers can only use a DSL-N version which has not been further developed (at least no new images) since months.
The look of DSL-N should be the same classic look as in DSL.
I would prever an easy blue background with some color structure instead of having a real picture in the background.
