"MEPIS Founder Warren Woodford wrote to let us know that the third release candidate for SimplyMEPIS 8.0 is now available for download. Woodford notes, "MEPIS 8.0 is in good shape, but I'd prefer to declare it final when Debian Lenny is released."

"MEPIS is one of several popular Linux distributions based on Debian. Others include Ubuntu, MINT, and Xandros. (For a time, MEPIS was based on Ubuntu, but switched back to Debian with the 6.0 release a couple of years ago.)

"The long delayed Lenny release of Debian is likely to launch on Valentine's Day. After that, SimplyMEPIS 8.0 will be released in final form, Woodford suggests."
