On December 29, MEPIS LLC released Beta1 of SimplyMEPIS-64
Version 6.0-4. SimplyMEPIS is a complete and safe desktop computing
environment designed to meet the needs of everyday computer users
and software professionals alike.
Warren Woodford of MEPIS said "We have tried to make the 64 bit
edition of SimplyMEPIS look, feel and function the same as the 32
bit edition. There are only a few differences, for example 32 bit
users can choose to download some extra multimedia codecs that are
not yet available in 64 bit versions."
The 64 bit version of SimplyMEPIS offer the same advanced
hardware autodetection, multimedia integration, and easy to use
installer that is included with the 32 bit edition. This release
includes Firefox 188.8.131.52, Flashplayer 9, OpenOffice 2.0.2, the very
stable 3.5.3 build of KDE desktop, and a rock solid, security
patched 2.6.15 Linux kernel with support for the newest sound chips
and Apple hardware.
