The most recent release from the MEPIS crew is SimplyMEPIS 6.5, which was released on April 4th, 2007. In all of my Linux and various distribution readings, I rarely hear about MEPIS; however, it is clearly popular as the MEPIS distribution.
SimplyMEPIS 6.5 is available in live CD form with with the image weighing in at approximately 700MB. Upon booting the live CD I was presented with many different display options. I accepted the default settings as my goal was to only install the system, but for users that may be using the live CD for an extended period of time this is a great thing to see.
