Even though I'm already running MEPIS 11 Beta 3 as my production system, I downloaded the RC version 1 to test it.
The Live DVD booted with no issue on my box. That's great. I still need to try it on older systems, so I'll wait a bit.
As with Beta 3, desktop effects are disabled by default. If I'm not mistaken, only Alpha 1 or 2 could actually use compositing right off the Live DVD on my PC, so I activated desktop effects without much expectation...
Whoa! They do work! MEPIS 11 RC1 brought back KDE's eye candy right from the DVD. Nice!
