SimplyMEPIS

Ubuntu LogoAbout SimplyMEPIS

MEPIS LLC was founded in 2002 by Warren Woodford, to realize a personal vision for a version of Linux that was complete and secure, while also being easy to try, easy to install, and easy to use.

SimplyMEPIS is a live Linux distribution. The term live refers to the fact that the distribution can be executed upon boot, without installation to a hard disk.  This enables a user to trial the software without affecting the current operating system installed on his or her computer. There is therefore no need to backup your data, delete the whole hard disk and install the system, just to find it does not suit you.

SimplyMEPIS 7.0 is built on the 2.6.22 Linux kernel, and is based on Ubuntu, which in turn is based on Debian.  The CD version contains over 1,900 software, with approximately 20% of the packages being maintained by MEPIS themselves.  Especially popular is the inclusion of Beryl, the combined window manager and composite manager which uses OpenGL to provide graphics acceleration.
