[News] Review: Simply Mepis 8 is Fantastic

Hash: SHA1

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'.
