[News] Another Good Desktop for Ubuntu/Debian Lovers: SimplyMEPIS

Hash: SHA1

Before Ubuntu Was SimplyMepis: A Long-Term Review

,----[ Quote ]
| SimplyMepis ships with Linux kernel 2.6.27-1, Xorg Server 1.4.2, and GCC 
| 4.3.2. Besides most of the usual KDE applications and those previously 
| mentioned, SimplyMEPIS includes applications such as KMPlayer, Kino, Guarddog 
| Firewall, JBidwatcher, and Amarok. It also includes codecs and plugins needed 
| to enjoy local and streaming multimedia and Web content. Lots of other 
| applications are available in the repositories.     
| Other than the few situations described, using SimplyMepis the past two 
| months has been a pleasure. It was very nice having such complete hardware 
| support and not having to set up all the multimedia and Web plugins myself. 
| The other applications I require functioned without issue. It was delightful 
| being able to concentrate on my work rather than the system underneath.

SimplyMEPIS 8.0.06 Update is Available

,----[ Quote ]
| MEPIS LLC has released SimplyMEPIS 8.0.06, an update to the community edition
| of MEPIS 8.0. The ISO files for 32 and 64 bit processors are
| SimplyMEPIS-CD_8.0.06-rel_32.iso and SimplyMEPIS-CD_8.0.06-rel_64.iso.


Mepis 8

,----[ Quote ]
| I just recently downloaded and installed Mepis again. I’ll have to say, it
| has really improved from previous installs I’ve tried. Before it was based on
| Ubuntu and had the blot inherited from such a blotted upstream distro.
| Ubuntu has done some great things for the Linux Community, but they have
| fallen off the cart in my book, because they have copied M$ in trying to be
| all things to all people and because of that, have blotted their system to
| become almost unusable on smaller older boxes.
| [...]
| So I believe Mepis will rank higher than it has in the past for me. For now
| at least, it’s 2nd to my main OS Debian. And that says a lot when it can bump
| Distros like Open Suse.


My Days at MEPIS

| Anyway, I won't bore you with the details, but after getting it up on her
| system, I like it so well that I think I will install it on my laptop.


Lights....A Review of SimplyMEPIS 8.0

,----[ Quote ]
| Depressed, and almost giving up, I came across MEPIS and since I didn't yet
| know how to burn an iso image to a CD, I simply mailed off $10 and MEPIS sent
| me a Live CD. Certainly, this cheap ten buck distro couldn't out perform the
| hundred dollar super distros. I gave it one more shot....and I was hooked!


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.


Debian Developers Conference call for speakers

| 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)
