More publicity for EasyOS

July 21, 2022 — BarryK

Holden sent me an email, with link to a review of EasyOS 4.2 on Distrowatch:

Recently, rufwoof sent me a link to a video about Easy 4.1, that I have posted about:

Although publicity is good, there is also a downside. It means more people will be trying Easy, and quite likely finding faults. Many of those people might not be aware that Easy is an experimental distribution, and almost every part of it is a work-in-progress.

Then there's the small package repository, and some packages don't work. Probably, when Easy Bookworm comes out, with access to the large Debian package repository, users who want lots of packages will be satisfied. But, that is probably a couple of months away.

I had an email discussion with Jesse at Distrowatch. He explained that their policy is to only announce new releases of a Linux distribution 3-months apart, or more. 4.0 was announced on 2022-06-09, only about a month ago. So, they won't announce 4.3, that I am expecting to release in a week.  That's OK with me.
