Easy Peasy Persistent Installation

After upgrading my EEE PC 901 to Easy Peasy 1.0 I was prompted with the install dialog each time I logged in. Not only was this annoying it was taking up valuable space on my hard drive.

To remove this prompt all that is required is to uninstall Ubiquity. You can do this either with the package manager or by using the command
sudo apt-get remove ubiquity
This will stop the annoying prompt to install each time but will also free up over 10MB of space
