    Hi ,
    nice release . I realy like it.
    But there is one thing I miss:

    Under the Files & Folders I realy miss network.
    Just a easy way to brows the network directly.

    Is there a way to put this in ?

    There is a bug to this RC. It is not allowing to install GRUB to logical partition. It assumes the default of MBR and if I try to change at the Advanced menu, saying, for instance /dev/sda8, the OK button does not allow to click and continue installation. It seems that is not considering a multiple OS HD installation that is very common.

    What a pity that you don´t give out the minimum specs it will run on, on the front page so users with other laptops/netbooks can see if it will run before downloading it.

    The problem related above has been fixed but it only installs to a logical partition if the partition had been created before so I installed to /dev/sda7 where had another OS before.

    Trying to install EasyPeasy 1.6 RC by adding on the HD free space gives an error message:

    “Error. Unable to satisfy all constraints on the partition”

    Then a second message pops up:

    “Can’t have overlapping partitions”

    I do hope you can fix this before final release.

    Installing 1.6 on a EeePC701 and it hangs @ keyboard selection?

    Installed on my eee900A and it works beautifully . New interface is better, but I’m not sure about the stuff on the task bar. Was afraid to upgrade, but now I’m glad!

    Is the EasyPeasy 1.6 better then Ubuntu 10.04. I was disappointed with the new Ubuntu because I did not notice anything spectacular.
    I like the screens of EasyPeasy and would love to replace my Ubuntu provided it supports dual boot with Windows and is not specifically for Note Books.
    Please someone advise, preferably through e-mail
    Thanks,
