I just tried version 1.6 again on an chinese PC with US Keyboard and there are problems with the updates. I'm downloading version 2.0 alpha now for tests and give more details of the problems after the installation of this version.

Well, Instalation is impossible, don't work, maybe because it is a 386 file, I don't know. Also based on Ubuntu 12.04 and I think this version is still in use, but not sure for it. I made a reset and tried again with a longer waiting period, result is the same (black screen).

Because Easy Peasy is no loner being supported by the Builder, i recommend moving on to other platforms like my favorite Linux Mint with MATE. It is just plain solid and has all of the support and updates. It works very well.

I tried Mint in the past (before easy peasy). It is complete and takes too much memory on disk. There is no advantage with that system for me. I stay under Windows 7 without alternative. But thanks for answering.

Guy - the black screen issue on installation might be a hardware problem. I tried running ubuntu 12.04 from a pen drive on an old tosh laptop with an intel extreme graphics card and had the same problem. There is a workaround for some hardware but it didn't work for mine.

Black screen problem could be a faulty bios, try flashing the latest bios and make sure you get it from the manufacturer's website of your country

You can view the Facebook link without a Facebook account. Unfortunately, there are no new announcements there at this time.

I'm very sorry that EasyPeasy 1.6 isn't out and I'm sorry for the lack of updates on the matter. EasyPeasy 1.7 is right around the corner. It will be based on Ubuntu 10.10. EasyPeasy 1.8 will be released about a month later and is based on Ubuntu 11.04. This is to allow you to do a seamless upgrade instead of requiring a fresh installation. About 4 months later, will we release EasyPeasy 2.0 which will be based on Ubuntu 11.10 and as you can see from the version number, will it include new features that we've been working on and are very proud of.

You should catch the bear before you sell its skin.
Or, as Henry Ford once said,
don't market to me what you will build. Market what you have built already.

Isn't the fur of the bear? I don't even think in english exists such an idiom like that; it seems translated right off a different language.

Very, very wrong, both of you about the issue. It is as I've said: You should catch the bear before you sell its skin.
It's not translated, I don't need to translate from any language, as I am a native speaker of English

I don't think this thread is the place to discuss language semantics, and insulting remarks are completely unacceptable. Please keep civil and to the point, Valeriano and G Mak. Thanks.

Any updates on 1.7? I can see a repo at http://archive.geteasypeasy.com/1.7/ so is it ready to switch?

If you look at the link you posted, then you can see that the posts are from 2010 and still for Maverick.
Since there are no news on http://www.geteasypeasy.com/get-easyp... or from Jon R. and the promised release in a couple of weeks turned into a couple of months it looks as if there are some problems right around the corner.

Easy Peasy is dead. It's time to switch to Ubuntu 11.04 with Netbook Launcher.

Ubuntu 11.04 is too bloated to rub happily on my Eee PC 1000. Easy Peasy 1.5 is running fine on it right now. If I feel the need to upgrade my version of Linux to something more up-to-date, I'll probably go with Crunchbang as my next choice.

The lack of updates of the status is regrettable; sorry. EasyPeasy 2.0 alpha was just released (https://twitter.com/#!/geteasypeasy/s...) and is pretty damn good :)

Jon,

already EP2.0 looks like beta version of Ubuntu 12.04 with traditional EP wallpaper. It's not enought for independent OS.
What's with Netbook Launcher,the best part of current EP?

So now it's 2013. Is this project dead? I really like it, and need this kind of distro for my old hardware. Please update us, thanks.

Jon Ramvi has left us with an abandoned legacy with Easy Peasy OS and i hate to move on since i like it so much, but the support is gone and so has Jon moved on to other distractions. It really is too bad. I am now looking at a new distro called LXLE. I am also checking out Watt. My primary like is Mint, but too big for a netbook environment.

@randy If you are already using mint, then simply install netbook-launcher-efl, and maximus, and on the login screen, select the netbook interface. It should do the trick; it depends a lot of course, on what version of mint you are using;

Certainly seems like EP is dead - not getting updates from the repository and can't get more uptodate info than 6 months ago. I looked at some other suggestions and someone suggested Voyager. Its based on Ububtu 13.10 but there was a version based on 12.04 LTS which is what I'd want, but I'm having problems downloading that version. Seems like the links on the website are dead ends but you can get a version via sourceforge. Anyone tried this distro and know where I can get the 12.04 version (its in french btw)?

Where am I - a budding Asus 4G user - now? I want a Linux to run on this m/c: I tried Ubuntu 12.04, but the opening screen won't fit, and leaves my e-mail access off the screen! Has anyone thought about this since "4 months ago"!

Since my last post here I have managed to download Voyager 12.04 (it is available on the site - you need a torrent manager to download it) and created a bootable USB using Unetbootin. Its a very nice distro based on xubuntu. However, seems that the EP updating repositries are running again as I have managed to get more recent 'updated' messages on my OS now!

I tried voyager yesterday, after seeing your post here; it's not very impressive at all; linux mint 13, the LTS with xfce runs twice as fast, has a lot more included, and repositories are quite fast
You should give it a try :)
linuxmint.com and head to downloads, mint 13 lts, xfce and find a mirror close to you

i recommend Linux Mint highly and you will find it outstanding regardless of what version or window layout you use. I understand that you can also download a netbook interface for Mint and that may also be a great help and solution for a stable and consistent repalcement for Easy Peasy.

I tried Ubuntu, Mint and voyager and in my case, nothing work, black screen with install exception for voyager in version 13, but the driver is not compatible with the motherboard. Of course, people can have different results in function of computers, but I give 6 months to Linux and it wil be definitively dead if they continue with bad work !!!

Don't give up on linux because of this; I've had once an acer aspire one for which I have tried over 200 (!) linux distros until I've found one that worked perfectly. Did you try mint debian version ? Also, have you tried booting with some of the known bootcodes ? Like, turning edd on, freeing terminals, vesa mode, etc... ?

@Setapan: re: Voyager - "it's not very impressive at all" Oh! :( I quite liked it - at least its very pretty! But if its slow on a netbook that's too bad (haven't tried a full install yet). Will try Mint as you suggest - I have a friend who has also recomended that. Thanks for the tip and other useful posts too.

Here's a hint. Point Linux is a perfectly wonderful distro. Uses the Mate desktop, which reminds us of good old Gnome 2. Installs flawlessly, runs seamlessly, and reminds me of good old Ubuntu 10.04 and Easy Peasy. It's worth looking at!

I would honestly love to beat the people who've destroyed gnome 2 and turned it into that stupid, reckless, piece of crap called unity; gnome 2 was simply excellent; I miss the days when an Os loaded with full gnome 2 in under 30 seconds, and with good ol' firefox 2.20, when webpages used to load in miliseconds;

I'll give pointlinux a try :)

Well, I'll tell you, millisefconds? Not with Chrome. But those days are over, I fear. Sigh. Let us know what you think of Point Linux if you get a chance to try it.

Hey Jeffrey, I've tried it, currently writing this comment from it, it works pretty ok booted from a usb stick, but there are some bugs and conceptually programatic errors in it; since I work both as a programmer and in IT support, I always keep a smoothly running distro, preferably debian-based, on a stick with me, for now, I'll keep point linux as a worst-case scenario, backup bootable stick.
Thanks for pointing it out to me :)

Very strange. I'm not a programmer any more, so I guess I don't notice things. But mine works very smoothly. It is, indeed, debian-based, but not tied to Ubuntu (thank goodness). Thanks for the feedback.
