| available from MEPIS and public mirrors. The 
| ISO files for 32 and 64 bit processors are

| SimplyMEPIS-CD_8.4.94-b2_64.iso.


MEPIS 8.5 Beta1 

,----[ Quote ]
| MEPIS Linux, the KDE based Linux 
| distribution, released the beta1 of MEPIS 
| 8.5. MEPIS Linux was one of the easy to use 
| Linux distributions besides PCLinuxOS, 
| before Ubuntu arrived. The users who wanted 
| to use the latest Debian's snapshot, but 
| afraid of all those text mode configuration 
| tricks found MEPIS as the Debian for the 
| masses. MEPIS Linux has some of the best 
| configuration utilities around, to configure 
| X and Networking (including WiFi). The 
| arrival of Ubuntu and the fact that as this 
| distribution has no specific release 
| schedule (this is developed by a single 
| person) might have reduced the fame of this 
| distribution. I'm trying this beta after a 
| long time just to check how MEPIS is doing 
| now and overall, I must say that I'm pleased 
| with this beta release.
| [...]
| MEPIS is one of the solid distributions and 
| this release also is not an exception. This 
| beta release is more solid than some other 
| RC releases I tried of some distributions 
| :-). MEPIS also has some issues where most 
| of the distributions work without any 
| issues. I'm particularly concerned about the 
| graphical configuration and the package 
| management issues. As this is only a beta 
| release, I expect the final release would be 
| more solid and functional. I would also 
| recommend to try the final release of MEPIS 
| for Linux beginners.

Mepis 8.0.10 perfects KDE 3.5.10

,----[ Quote ]
| KDE 4.3 is Great but I would suggest all newbies to try the
| last, KDE 3.5.10 release of Mepis 8 (8.0.10) before it moves
| into KDE 4 world (cos i don't know what will happen then).


Simply Mepis 8 is a nice little Debian-based Linux distro

,----[ Quote ]
| I am now running the latest version of Simply Mepis 8, one of many offshoots
| of Debian Linux and therefore a cousin of the venerable Ubuntu. I am taken
| back a couple of years to the simpler days of the KDE 3.5 interface. KDE 4,
| the current darling, is a work of art by the guys at TrollTech, borrowing
| elements from Apple's Aqua interface, but this old tech favors reliability
| over flash, and as a law student I have little time to expore the wonders of
| KDE 4. Simply Mepis with KDE 3.5 is, in a word, familiar.
