[News] SimplyMepis Gets a Recommendation

Hash: SHA1

First encounters of the SimplyMepis kind

,----[ Quote ]
| If you are considering making the move to Linux or are just looking for 
| something new or different to try, you should give SimplyMepis 8 a shot. The 
| official version uses KDE 3.5 as it’s desktop, but there is also a remastered 
| version on the Mepis Lovers Forums that uses KDE 4.2. Either way, it’s a 
| great Linux distro and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.    


Good derivative of good Debian.

Debian Developers Conference call for speakers

,----[ Quote ]
| The Debian Project is looking for speakers for the annual DebConf developers 
| meeting. This year's event, DebConf9, is to be held in Cáceres, Spain from 
| 24th to 30th July 2009.  



Installing Mepis 8

,----[ Quote ]
| I am writing this tutorial because I have received feedback from people I
| have recommended Mepis 8 to that the step where partitioning is done or
| partitions are selected during the install is not clear. Also, I have seen
| questions about upgrading an existing Mepis installation or reinstalling to
| fix a broken installation. I will address these situations in this tutorial


Debian Seeks New Fearless Leader

,----[ Quote ]
| Yes, it's that time again: time for the root of all Debian-based
| distributions — that'd be Debian, of course — to pick a fresh face from its
| ranks to take on the mantle of the powers-that-be.


First look at SimplyMEPIS 8.0

,----[ Quote ]
| SimplyMEPIS I have been intrigued by MEPIS Linux ever since I first heard
| about it, but never actually got around to trying it. The distro was founded
| by Warren Woodford in late 2002 after he had tried several distributions of
| Linux, but found that they all fell short of his vision for how a Linux
| desktop should work.


Simply Mepis 8 is Finally Here

,----[ Quote ]
| In summary, I am extremely pleased with this version of Simply Mepis. It is
| rock solid, easy to use and easy to maintain. I must not forget to give
| credit to the guys from the MEPISlovers forums who worked tirelessly
| producing quality artwork, giving valuable input to Warren. My hat is off to
| everyone who had a hand in making this distribution the excellent product it
| is.


Warren Woodford on MEPIS kernel, favourite features

,----[ Quote ]
| Warren Woodford, founder and lead developer of MEPIS Linux, had previously
| complained that Debian 5.0 "Lenny" didn't ship with a long-term support Linux
| kernel, and so the latest release of MEPIS breaks form with Lenny only days
| after its release by shipping with a newer kernel - something that could
| potentially make MEPIS less compatible with software certified for Debian. We
| asked Warren what kind of thinking was behind the switch, and also about his
| favourite new features in MEPIS 8.0...


Mepis 8.0 Desktop - A Debian Joyride

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall Mepis 8 is snappier than ever. Needless to say it is rock solid based
| on Debian Lenny. I have been tinkering with it for 3 days, but it has never
| borked. And the best thing in using Mepis 8 is that you can you can enjoy
| very easy Linux computing yet access thousands of Debian applications.


Review: Mepis 8.0

,----[ Quote ]
| It is part of the family of Debian-based Linux distributions which I tend to
| favour, and it is a distribution I used for quite a lengthy period in the
| past.
| Plus, there is much to like about version 8.0, released recently to coincide
| with the launch of its parent distribution, Debian 5.0 'Lenny'.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
