Just found this in Karmi’s blog a couple days ago:
Okeeeee Karmi: Challenge Accepted! =^.^=
I must tell you now that this ain’t my first rodeo with Puppy Linux spin-offs, as I’ve tried 2 or 3 of these ultralights already years ago and was never satisfied with their stone-age appeal. But this is the anno domini 2021, maybe Barry Kauler did finally come up with something a bit more modern and straightforward. Who knows? Curiously I download the EasyOS ISO file and put it onto a USB stick. And then:
After you boot the computer you’re welcomed by this overly populated and confusing desktop which looks a bit like a mix of DOS and Win 3.0. Not a nice habitat to be in.
After searching the whole PC up and down and left to right, and sniffing in each and every menu category, I can’t find an Install button. I guess this is like the Puppys of the past. Just copying the ISO file onto the PC’s internal hard disk or SSD obviously counts as “installation” in Mr. Kauler’s mind.
I decide this EasyOS is obviously not made for spoiled brats like Orca but has the appeal of a Meccano toy set, so it’s more for playful boys. Angry about having wasted at least half an hour of my precious time I switch the PC off.
No, honestly, I really do believe that distros like EasyOS and all the other Puppys, are to blame for the very very small minority of female Linux users. But otoh it’s fun to see how the boys are geeking out over a simple computer OS … that they never use for anything worthwile anyway. For serious work and fun they use fuxn Windows. 🙂
