DesktopLinux.com has a review of
SimplyMEPIS 6.5 rc2
. "SimplyMEPIS 6.5 is built on the 2.6.17
Linux kernel, based on Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (Long Term Service), aka "Dapper
Drake," by the way. Until version 6.0, MEPIS had been built on Debian, but
MEPIS designer Warren Woodford found that Debian Stable was too far behind
the curve, and Debian Testing/Unstable was advancing too quickly and
breaking too often, so he switched to Ubuntu. Unlike Ubuntu, which uses
GNOME for its default desktop, MEPIS uses KDE 3.5.3.
" The final release of SimplyMEPIS 6.5 is now out.
