    Yes I remember in 2010 using Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook on my Asus eeePC, the classic one with 4GB SDD. At that time working abroad, I used it as a kind of desktop with a cheap ($15) second hand 15" LCD display, a 16GB SD card and a 40GB USB disk. When in my apartment(hotel), I did not touch my work laptop with Vista. Nowadays I still look at it from time to time in Virtualbox.

    I probably would use it on my old P-III laptop, that my wife is using in her small restaurant to play music. I would prefer it over Lubuntu. After remembering that GUI, I might re-install 10.04.

    It was upgraded nicely up to Oneiric, and after that there was/is a little trouble. This is really fast, and now I am wondering why our "devs" keep on making new DEs and make everything slow.

    Unity works with Gnome 3 and if not for Gnome 3, this EasyPeasy would be alive today.
    Yes, I have serious questions about the ideas of the devs, who produce slower DEs!

    If I forget that there is a Precise built and further builds, Quantal and Raring, I can happily stay back with Oneiric, Natty or even Lucid. Who is going to tell me that I can't install the latest Chrome/Chromium or Firefox?

    I think the devs are wasting time re-doing DEs/WMs, rather than making the well used DEs/WMs better! I think this "development" is all about money.

    I liked that desktop. In my taste it was the best desktop till 2011. I still would love to have it on my older PCs, but I would not replace Unity on the newer PCs.
    In Unity I love the single click launcher, the right click menus and the integration with websites. Slowly the top bar and the Dash become more useful and I see some future potential in the HUD, if combined with e.g. speech recognition.

    I hope you can/do revive easypeasy, I love that whole concept. I still have 10.04 netbook remix on an Asus eeepc and it's the best.

    I'd be very happy to see a new release of easy-peasy.

    Last i heard they were working on a gnome shell version. That was only a couple of months ago (IIRC).

    What happened? I notice their site is completely messed up now too.

    Well, its up to the original developer to release one, but if he won't I might do that, the only problem being finances.

    I have so many remixes, though to share with you guys.

    Good day!

    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!

    Ch

    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
