"MEPIS is easily the most obscure of my favorite distributions. Unlike most Linux distributions, it has neither a company nor a community behind it. MEPIS is almost entirely the product of one developer, Warren Woodford.

"Warren, after playing with SUSE and Mandrake (now Mandriva Linux), decided he could create his own distribution that met his needs better and so started what became MEPIS, also known as SimplyMEPIS, a Debian Linux-based desktop distribution.

"It wasn't long after he created it in 2003 that I gave it a try. Ever since then, I find myself returning it to it again and again."
