Version: 4.2easys GNU/Linux was formerly known as "pocketlinux".
Operating System: Linux
easys GNU/Linux main aims are to be small, fast and easy to use. If you think your live isn't slacked, yet, give this one a try.
easys GNU/Linux is a Slackware-based distribution developed by former developers of the now-discontinued Bonzai Linux.
easys GNU/Linux has a different approach then most other distributions. We want to build up a version of linux you can count on, and you can do your daily work with.
In the past 10 years in computer business I have noticed that most users only need a few applications (f.e. a texteditor, a spreadsheet, a browser or an email client). Current Desktop Environemnts like KDE offer a lot more. But can you tell me WHO really needs 3 different texteditors? So we slimmed it all down a bit. And that's what pocketlinux is about. We do not offer any administration frontends for deep system tweeks, as we think a "normal" user should not touch these things. Experienced Users can use the on board administration tools that come with the Slackware core. (Of course, if you really want to change any hardware specific settings like your monitor resolution, feel free to ask someone in the forum).
We only offer 1 application per task, so there is only one texteditor visible for the end user. (Please note that the kde-light environment is based on a complete KDE version, so most of the KDE application are onboard, too. But they are not visible to the end user per default.)
So we took a look at other installers and noticed the "shell script" based Slackware installer. The only thing we do not like about it is that it's not i18n-able. So we took some time to customize the installer to be able to write back a complete tar archive on nearly any harddrive. We added i18n support (English and German right now. We are still looking for translators) and modified the kernel installation.
