Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"The last time I looked at SimplyMEPIS was the 8.0 release. In this review I'll be taking a look at the latest version, SimplyMEPIS Linux 8.5. SimplyMEPIS is based on Debian, and it uses KDE as its desktop environment.

"What's New In This Release

"Here's a sample of the new stuff you'll find in this release:

"2.6.32 kernel
KDE 4.3
The SimplyMEPIS Welcome Center
NDisWrapper Manager

"The Welcome Center

"SimplyMEPIS now comes with the MEPIS Welcome Center. The welcome center provides helpful links to support resources, language packs, popular applications and additional community software. The welcome center is a nice addition to SimplyMEPIS though it's not quite as slick as the one that comes with Linux Mint."
