xPud Comments

Dead Project...

Comment by Jupiter2
about xPud Sep 2016

Although the website and forums are up, xPud hasn't been updated since 2009. The forums are also dead (some activity in 2011, a single post in 2012). I remember running xPud during my netbook days (I settled on Puppy) but I thought it showed promise. I envisioned a kiosk-type system for the non-tech savvy - helpful UI for these kinds of users too.

Given the security issues with any OS that isn't being actively work on (much less one that saw it's last update 7 years ago), it's probably not a good idea to run it online.
