SimplyMEPIS 8.0 - Review

Filed under
Linux

SimplyMEPIS is a Debian-based distribution, aiming at being simple and usable out of the box. Currently, version 7.0 is available to the users, with advanced betas of version 8.0 getting ever more ready toward the release. I decided to give it a whirl.

In this review, I will pit SimplyMEPIS against the solid impression of stability and usability that several other distributions have left upon me, namely Ubuntu, SUSE, PCLinuxOS, and others. To pass the test, SimplyMEPIS has to be friendly. It has to be solid and functional. Most importantly, if things are missing (like applications, codecs etc), they have to be quickly and easily obtainable.

So let's rock!
