Easy Peasy 1.0 Released

Jan 07, 2009

The Ubuntu Eee Linux variant optimized for netbooks is now known as Easy Peasy. Version 1.0 is on the same level as Ubuntu 8.10.

To avoid confusion with the Eeebuntu project and to emphasize how simple it is to install Linux on netbooks, the Ubuntu Eee distro was renamed Easy Peasy. Version 1.0 has now been released. It brings the system up to the level of Ubuntu 8.10 and, thanks to the new kernel, supports not only Asus Eee PCs but other netbooks as well.

Easy Peasy uses the Ubuntu Netbook Remix interface instead of the traditional GNOME desktop environment. The roughly 1-GByte ISO image of Easy Peasy 1.0 is available here from a number of Sourceforge mirror sites.
