MEPIS founder Warren Woodford has announced
a test release of
SimplyMEPIS 6.0, incorporating software from the Ubuntu Dapper package
pools. This is the first version of SimplyMEPIS with an Ubuntu base.
"Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical, said "Collaboration with
MEPIS will help Ubuntu offer even higher quality desktop packages for KDE
users, and expands the number of people who can benefit from our work on
system integration, desktop polish and Linux kernel reliability. The MEPIS
community is vibrant and energetic and it will be exciting to be able to
work more closely with them, while still respecting the ways in which
Ubuntu and MEPIS are distinct."
