Hash: SHA1

Great Distros You May Not Have Tried

,----[ Quote ]
| There are some great distributions in our wonderfully cluttered Linux distro 
| landscape. Some are very similar to others, and some are wildly different 
| from the rest. The one thing to remember is that while these distributions 
| may be amazingly well thought out, and amazingly well put together their 
| obscurity will present two problems.

SimplyMEPIS Linux 8.0

| Certain distributions tend to get more press than others. SimplyMEPIS isnât
| one of the ones that gets drooled over by the media the way that Linux Mint,
| Ubuntu and others do. I include myself in this as a journalist since this
| blog has been up and running since early July and Iâm just now getting to a
| review of SimplyMEPIS. Itâs a shame though as SimpyMEPIS has quite a bit to
| offer the desktop Linux user as youâll find out in this review.

Review: SimplyMepis 8.0

,----[ Quote ]
| SimplyMepis, or Mepis for short, is a distribution targeted towards new users
| that has the intended goal of providing a good distribution that is easy to
| use. ÂVersion 7.0, which was my first experience with Mepis was pretty good.
| But past success means little if the newer version doesn't deliver. ÂSo let's
| see how SimplyMepis 8 does.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
