With the release of Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jacalope, Canonical has made a great distro which finally supports netbooks. The Ubuntu Netbook Remix is Ubuntu with the Netbook Remix interface installed which also Easy Peasy uses. But just as we’ve made the linux kernel and Easy Peasy as a whole, a thourowly optimized operating system for netbooks, we want to take the netbook interface one step further.

We want to move web down to the desktop, as you’re using Easy Peasy on a netbook you shouldn’t have to start Firefox to start sufring. We add an Easy Peasy profile on the top right. The dekstop will be open and module based so anyone will be able to write the next great module. Default modules should include Facebook, Twitter, Email, Chat and RSS feeds.
We also want people to start using Gnome Do. We believe that average Joe doesn’t use is today because he’s afraid of keyboard shortcuts, so we’ve decided to move the great Gnome Do application to the desktop (and map it to the Home/Windows/Super key for you keyboard shortcut lovers). That means that while your doing anything, you can click the Easy Peasy logo in the top left or click the Home button on the keyboard and start typing: Search your computer, Google, Translate, Set your Twitter status, etc. all from your desktop.
