The Latest Easy Peasy ver. 1.5 is Here

Because your netbook doesn’t need to feel sucky! And it could work better for you too!

Sounds like an infomercial, doesn’t it? ;  )  But thinking about what defaults you might possibly have, there’s gotta be something better.  And I might be biased but there really are other things better on netbooks compared to Windows.  Whether you believe it or not, that’s what I personally think.  Windows looks too cluttered for me even though it’s not as sluggish as I thought it would be.

Anyway, no need to freak out that your netbook isn’t quite as fantastic as you thought it should be. Some changes in the latest version of Easy Peasy:

  • It has a new look!
  • It uses kernel 2.6.30 that’s been optimized for netbooks so that startup’s faster.
  • Support for more netbooks! Hooray!
  • An image which could possibly be installed from a Mac.
  • Upgraded software like Picasa and OpenOffice.org.
  • It uses Ext4 as a file system by default.

I am waiting for my download of EasyPeasy to get done so I could blog about my first impressions too. As much as I am excited to try it out because of Ext4 and the latest kernel that’s optimized for netbooks, Ubuntu Karmic Koala’s just around the corner. Hrmm. I don’t know.

But yeah, those who are new netbook owners could benefit from distros whose teams are always seeking ways to make it easier for newbies to use Linux. They make sure that the applications that users will look for are there. Like Picasa or Skype.

And it’s really great that the Easy Peasy team has gone beyond supporting Asus EEE PC so other netbook owners could enjoy the benefits of this distro.

Just wait for me to check it out and I’d post my screenshots and write my impressions of this version of Easy Peasy. I already have the image and so I just need to put it on a USB flashdrive for a review later.

    Hopefully this version fixes the “feature” of the last which fried the system on failed wake-from-hibernate? Cuz that was not cool – I had to restore to factory XP twice!

    One question, how is this different/better then the curret Ubuntu netbook remix release?
