By popular demand - we are currently working on a Barebones version of Peach OSI. This version will have the same Xfce Desktop environment but without the added bulk of all of the installed software in the full version of Peach OSI. This Barebones version is for those of Linux aficionados who would prefer to install your own software. The target date for the release of this version is 11/21/2014. Check back often to see updates concerning this proposed version. Feel free to give us suggestions below as we move toward the completion of this project.
When you first begin using Peach OSI - You might want to boot from a USB device, like an external hard drive or a flash drive. When you boot from a USB device, what you're actually doing is running your computer with the operating system that's installed on the USB device. When you start your computer normally, you're running with the operating system installed on your hard drive. Follow these easy steps to boot from a flash drive or an external USB hard drive. Depending on the age of your computer you should be able to boot your computer with a USB device in one of the following ways.
Method 1 - Usually used on older computers - Boot to USB by editing your BIOS settings.
Note: Creating a bootable flash drive or configuring an external hard drive as bootable is a task in itself. Chances are that you made it to these instructions because you already know that whatever USB device that you have should be bootable after properly configuring your computer's BIOS.
How about a Peach Distro that allows you to have a fully functioning HD Home Theater PC for the Raspberry Pi? Well we have it. And you know what? We use it ourselves daily. Fast, functional and full of HTPC features!!
Now this is what I'm talking about! We've built a lightning fast full desktop system for the Raspberry Pi. Oh you can get many operating systems for the Raspberry Pi but you have never seen anything like this.
