For you, on the other hand, Puppy has been a passion, obviously! You must have quite the stashed resources at your command, of which aI may be slightly envious!
Heh. "Stashed resources" is quite right, if I'm honest.
I worked out the other day that I've got something like 800+ Puppy packages available to the community, spread across 3 cloud accounts; Google's Drive, MediaFire and most recently, MEGA.nz. Some of it dates back at least 7 years.
On my system, I've got around 1.9 TB of specifically 'Puppy-stuff'! I'm a hoarder; I very rarely delete stuff once I've acquired it, although there IS a 'cut-off' point.....currently, anything relating to Lucid or older. Although, having said that, Darren did put together an upgraded Puppy 4.3.1 a couple or three years ago, before COVID hit - 4.3.11, the "Phoenix". My God, we had some fun with that. I think the biggest shock he got was when I assembled a portable-chroot based around Tahrpup 6.0.5, running what was at that point an up-to-date 32-bit version of the Iron browser.....v69, as I recall. I packaged the entire thing as an SFS, so it could simply be loaded/unloaded, as and when.
None of us could have imagined it would be possible to run a modern Chromium 'clone' in such an elderly Pup. I've still got a directory of packages we trawled the archives for to see if they would work.....
Yep, "our Pup" IS summat of a passion as far as I'm concerned!
