    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,

    It is so easy to work with, much easier than Gnome3 or Unity. I don't own a touchpad, but I think it works very well with that too.

    Actually, now I upgraded it, I don't feel like looking at Gnome 3 or Unity. And how fast it is! :

    I am using it in my old, but good Lenovo T400. I even installed it on my desktop.

    That's the Sri Lankan flag, reflected on glass balls.

    Really wished that the old 10.04 netbook-launcher survived. Always thought it was an awesome interface.

    Nice going! What is the next step?

    ......and perhaps you should put a cricket ball alongside the flag and glass balls!

    The interface would work better as a hidden launcher like EOS's slingshot. Or better yet there could be an enable to hide the applications window until its actually needed. Apart from that, I wouldn't change it. That's the only modification that might be made to the classic netbook interface.
