Distrowatch weekly interviewed John and Robert this week. Read the interview at:

The DSL Forum Search default is 'OR'
If you search for "cat dog" you will get all "cat" posts and all "dog" posts.
If you search for "cat AND dog" you will only find results that contain BOTH "cat" and "dog"
Add '*' for wildcards, " cat* and dog* "

Nice interview John and Robert. I liked John's comment about the 12yr old eating pizza in reference to bloat. :)

That should be a must-read for anyone wanting to understand the philosophy of DSL. Might be good to link that interview in the wiki.

The puppy defenders rushed to defend but I didn't see that RS or John said anything bad about puppy. Two different OS's with two different approaches.

I'm glad both guys mentioned about the $100 laptop program. I know Red Hat has their fingers in it but, man, getting John and RS involved seems to be a no-brainer to me to get this thing into the market in a reasonable amount of time.

I did see some 'talk' in the postings appearing to be defending puppy.
Some mention about "running in ram" ( hello?) and the applications
included..  but not much defense mentioning the points RS made..

I wouldn't have picked THAT distro to make comparisons to DSL anyway.

Nice to see some exclusive action at DW !

"John and I have discussed offering only a tiny "app-less" core. This would then solely rely on our infrastructure to have the distro totally your way."

it would be pretty great!!! Just keep going on that interesting way with modular DSL-Sized images. Pretty nice interview.

I guess I should have scrolled down a little further cuz I just posted the same link to the interview. DOH!

Good reading and well deserved recognition.
