A First Look at SimplyMEPIS 6.5
Review: Want a solid KDE-based Linux desktop that can work hard even when you're hardly working? We found it in SimplyMEPIS 6.5. (DesktopLinux.com)I have a nomination for the "Worst possible situation for reviewing an operating system" award. Review it, SimplyMEPIS 6.5 Release Candidate 2, while stuck in a hotel room 2,000 miles from home, with food poisoning. Trust me, in a situation like this, you are not in the mood to put up with any crap from your computers operating system. Youve got enough going wrong with you without any thing else going wrong. So, there I was in Salt Lake City, sick as a dog, with my faithful IBM T40 ThinkPad. This system uses a 1.5GHz Pentium M processor with 1MB of Level 2 cache, and a 400 MHz FSB (Front Side Bus). It has 512MB of DDR (double data rate) SDRAM (synchronous dynamic RAM) memory, and a built-in ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 AGP 4x with 32MB of VRAM (video RAM) for graphics.
