SimplyMEPIS v6.0 Alpha 1 ReviewPosted on 2006-04-14 13:25:55 by LSDsmurf
SimplyMEPIS, the distribution designed for point-and-click usage, has reached version 6.0 Alpha 1. Recently SimplyMEPIS has been making news for now being based upon Ubuntu rather than Debian itself, and this release begins to pool in some of these changes. This release is still experimental and ships with the latest packages while a Beta is planned for later this month and the final release to come around June 1, 2006. The kernel that ships with SimplyMEPIS 6.0 Alpha 1 is the 2.6.15 kernel, GCC 4.0.3, KDE 3.5.2, and Xorg 7.0.
