SimplyMEPIS 8.0 - Review

,----[ Quote ]
| If you're a Linux enthusiast, you have probably heard of SimplyMEPIS. It is a
| Debian-based distribution, aiming at being simple and usable out of the box.
| Currently, version 7.0 is available to the users, with advanced betas of
| version 8.0 getting ever more ready toward the release.
| [...]
| SimplyMEPIS is a nice distro. It's neither spectacular nor catastrophic. It
| sits somewhere in the middle between very simple and very un-simple distros.
| Compared to Ubuntu or SUSE, it does lag somewhat behind.
| The greatest disappointment are the bleak live session and the clumsy network
| support, which could have been so easily avoided. On the other hand, it does
| come with lots of goodies pre-baked, like Flash or MP3 codecs. When it comes
| to configurations, the layout of menus and the wording used are not very
| intuitive. Yet, it is fast and good-looking.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
