How Easy works

December 20, 2018 — BarryK

EasyOS is a "new paradigm" for a Linux distribution, a blend of the best ideas from Puppy and Quirky, and a fundamental rethink of the security, maintainability and ease-of-use.

This page was originally written on September 24, 2017, for EasyOS version 0.1.6.

However, the original script is retained on this page, as it is smaller and easier to follow, and it still has the essential components.
