"I chose SimplyMEPIS for its simplicity and the fact that this
distribution was designed for use on today's desktops and laptops.
There are drivers for many Wi-Fi and other network adapters as well
as codecs that allow multimedia formats normally accessible to
Windows and Mac OS-X to be usable on MEPIS.
"So far everything works "out of the box", that is, no extra
configuration other than getting the software repositories
configured was needed.
"Not only that, but SimplyMEPIS flies on this laptop."
