Filed under
Linux

MEPIS recently released the latest beta of its lightweight Linux distribution MEPISLite 3.3.2-test01, thus making it the first vendor to release a Linux based on the Debian Common Core.

The DCCA (Debian Common Core Alliance) is a group of Debian Linux vendors and nonprofit organizations that are seeking to create a common Linux base, the DCC (Debian Common Core) for their various distributions. MEPIS is a DCCA member.

The DCCA's goal is to create a LSB (Linux Standard Base) 3.0-compliant, Debian 3.1 (aka Sarge)-based core distribution.

MEPISLite is an entry level version of desktop MEPIS designed for home users.
