Up to now I am really liking this experimental distro, it is more stable than some better known distros and runs well from a usb stick on my older hardware which is correctly recognised and supported. No waiting Minutes for start or shutdown to complete either.
I have found all the applications I need for everyday use but have not yet figured out how to install brother drivers for my MFC device. Maybe I will have to read someof the confusing ? documentation, what I have read up to now has not confused me, not yet anyway.

I am very impressed with what Barry has come up with, lovely sample of what comes out when a lateral thinking Aussie genius goes to work.

Thanks mate please just let the moaners go back to mint or wherever they feel happy.

In Deutsch, wer nicht Akzeptiert das Herr Kauler nicht ein Alternativ produkt zu Mint oder Buntu beabsichtigt und ein weniger Polierte Ideenreiche Experimentelle Distro unter die Menschen gebracht hat, kann gerne zu jeder Alternative greifen. Besser wäre wenn ihr das verbessert was euch stört und an Barry weiterreicht damit falls euren Arbeit gefällt er es integrieren kann.

I've been playing with EasyOS on my laptop since v0.8.1. More and more it is becoming the most used. The containers are a very nice feature. Complete separation for external facing programs (browser, e-mail, etc) is excellent for security.
