Easy Peasy V1.1 A Quick First Look

[ Thanks to Small Box Admin for this link. ]

"This leads me to Easy Peasy v1.1, which is based on Ubuntu 8.10. Installing the XFCE respin of Fedora was not uneventful. I had to search the Internet on how to configure the wireless adapter, sound and installing all of the multimedia codecs for video and Internet. It wasn't a difficult task, but took a little time going over different web sites and getting the configuration just right. After the work was done I was happy with the final result. I didn't really want to go through that process again.

"Easy Peasy was originally designed for Asus Eee PC's, however, the latest version includes support for other netbooks including my Acer Aspire One. I downloaded the ISO image and the UNetbootin utility from the Easy Peasy web site. Using UNetbootin I created a bootable USB stick from the ISO image. This was done on a Windows XP machine since I was away from my Linux workstation, but there are UNetbootin downloads for both Windows and Linux."
