SimplyMEPIS Linux 8.0 Review

[ Thanks to Jim Lynch for this link. ]

"SimplyMEPIS 7.0 discontinued the use of Ubuntu binary packages in favor of a combination of MEPIS packaged binaries based on Debian and Ubuntu source code, combined with a Debian Stable OS core and extra packages from Debian package pools.

"SimplyMEPIS is a Live CD distribution so you can check it out without having to install it. When you first boot into SimplyMEPIS you'll see that you can log in as Root or as Demo. No passwords are included on the login screen but if you simply use root or demo you can login and then begin the installation. I noticed when booting into the demo desktop that sound worked perfectly as I heard the login music play.

"Note that when you go to do the install you'll need to type in the root account's password (root) to begin. The install itself is very easy and only took me about 15 minute or so. I had no problems with it and was able to boot into my SimplyMEPIS 8.0 desktop."
