5 Minutes of SimplyMepis 8.0.00

Filed under
Linux

When I installed Fedora from the Live CD and found it to be incredibly slow, I blamed myself. This hardware, I said, is just not up to running a modern livecd.

Then I booted the Knoppix 6.0.1 CD, and it was outrageously fast. But still, I said, Knoppix is using LXDE, which is much lighter than Fedora's Gnome desktop.

But now after trying SimplyMepis, I am forced to conclude that the Fedora livecd really does just completely suck. It's not me, Fedora, it's you. Sorry. Had to be said.

5 second review

If I'm going to review Butter Knives, guess what, I'm going to test them on.... that's right..... butter, not plywood.

This guys trying to review modern distros on craptastically old hardware. Big surprise that he has no clue how they actually work.

I look forward to his review on Jet Engines by comparing their logos.
