  • First-bootup Welcome page

    At the very first bootup of Easy, a "Welcome" page displays, with a friendly introduction how to use Easy and brief overview of how Easy works. I mentioned yesterday that I revised this page.

(I thought someone online was joking when I first read about it :-) Read more

Linux has been growing in popularity as an alternative to Windows and macOS, especially for users that want privacy, security, and control over how their data is used. Linux is also unencumbered by Microsoft’s TPM requirements, making it a good option for hardware left behind by Windows 10 or Windows 11.
