I honestly don't know.
For starters, he seems to be more comfortable the way it is right now, managing the project all by himself. Which he still could do even if we had dozens of developers here...
On the other hand, I have seen this "movie" way too many times with other projects. Lack of user-base/fans/developers leading the lead-developer to abandon the project.

I probably wouldn't, would try to find some lite linux without systemd
or maybe go BSD
Puppy could probably be altered to my needs

For starters, I don't think Puppy can ever be altered to my needs. It's got too much hacks on it. I prefer something more standard like alphaos.
Between windows (super hyper bloated) and linux (main distros very bloated) I would probably choose what is more standard, which is windows. PC-BSD (and the defunct desktopBSD) has been on my radar for almost a decade but it always seems to be one step behind regarding linux.

Scooby wrote:I think it is a matter of size. Isn't Qt a bit large?

I don't think Qt is so much larger than Gtk. On arch repos Gtk3 is 64.2MB and Qt4 is 83.2. These figures are without dependencies.
Besides, as far as I am aware, Sim had a version of alphaos ready to be launched which he only didn't because he didn't find an appropriate web browser based on Qt to cut on "Gtk dependencies".

I've started working on the new iso, with kernel 3.17.1 and arm date 2014/10/25, to update all applications and stuff as we like latest and greatest.

That will be most welcome :D. More grease to your coding elbows ;)

Cheers.

Excellent. Nothing like a system up-to-date.
Say, why don't you ever comment our posts regarding our concerns over alphaos's future?
