    Remember EasyPeasy? Would you like it to live on?

    I suppose you all remember EasyPeasy.
    it appears that its development had stopped. I thought I'd revive it, just like I did with ZevenOS. I have moved it to Precise base. I am testing it now. It is blazing fast!

    I have not yet seen any distro that fast!

    There is little bit of work to on this modification, so I can't post a screenshot yet.

    Would you guys like to have it living on?

    Once done, I may have to change the branding to upload it. Let's see how it goes.

    I'd like to upload upgraded ZevenOs too, but must write to the original developer, Leszek Leszner.

    Good day to you all!

    The default wallpaper must be a bowl of peas, or an imageless, pea-green background.

    It works quite well with Precise.
    When, trying to upgrade Synaptic, the Ubuntu-desktop tries hard to add Unity and uninstall Easypeasy-desktop, but the older Synaptic is good enough.

    Much easier than working with Unity or Gnome-shell, the launcher stays dimmed underneath. You can even click on the dimmed apps too.

    Yeah, actually I am a big fan of the netbook version of 10.04. Bring back that desktop!!

    Easy Peasy was always a netbook favourite.....but I can't remember why!

    Your screenshots look pretty good,

    Hello Jon,

    It is your creation, and you thought about it and the ideas grew in your mind. I am a guy, who tries out an idea and I thought it could be upgraded, without touching the EasyPeasy part, only the base, so I tried and brought safely to Oneiric. I like the EasyPeasy part as it is, whatever the base.

    Jon, I downloaded the 2.0, but didn't like it--it was just Gnome 3-- as it didn't have the EasyPeasy part.

    Anyway, EasyPeasy is yours and you should get the credit. Actually, it is the best GUI/DE I've seen up to now!

    I tried to contact you, but couldn't and today I found a way in your website. Glad you responded. I'll write to you some time tomorrow.

    Take care!

    I switched to Mint because it keeps developing a fork of a good old Gnome2. Can anybody tell me how to install the EasyPeasy launcher on Mint? I would be more than happy.

    Well, I am thinking about how to get that happen on Precise.

    EasyPeasy is working very well with Oneiric base. But, it works also very well with Natty too. What i am wondering is why do I need these ever growing bases, when the distro works superbly as it is.

    I simply can get Firefox 17 on the original EasyPeasy, and that's all I need to browse the web. i can install the newest LibreOffice too.

    Just because Ubuntu says that the base is not supported anymore, doesn't mean the unique distro would stop working. i have the original EasyPeasy working superbly on one of my partitions!

    Now, a question for you. You like the Gnome 2, so is there any reason to drop a very well working Gnome 2 distro, just because Ubuntu is producing new bases, such as Precise, Quantal or Raring?

    Why not try to install the newest kernel on to a Gnome 2 distro?

    Anyway, I hope Jon would bring in a new EasyPeasy with that unique Gui! I'm trying everything possible to help him out to do so.

    Good day!

    Ch
