Easy Linux returning

May 20, 2017 — BarryK
I designed Easy Linux early in 2017, a radical rethink of how Linux works, a new paradigm even.

Version 0.2 pre-alpha was released on the 17th of March 2017, see blog announcement:
http://bkhome.org/news/201703/easy-linux-02-pre-alpha.html

...there is a link to a web page that outlines the architecture.

There was some great feedback on the Puppy Forum, however, I got diverted, worked on compiling everything in OpenEmbedded. That has reached a milestone, have compiled almost ever package needed by Quirky/Easy, and wrote a script to import the binary packages into woofQ.

Have just built Easy 0.2.1 with the packages from OE, using it now. Works great.

Now I am back on developing Easy. The first thing that I plan to do is simplify the loading of sfs files. This was an area of difficulty reported in the forum.
I know what to do to make that super-easy. Will do so and build a new version for release.
