  1. 1. - MEPIS - Version 8.0
  2. 2. MEPIS Linux - is a desktop Linux system that is also easy to configure as a dedicated server. It is designed for both personal and business purposes. It includes cutting-edge features such as a live/installation/recovery CD, automatic hardware configuration, NTFS partition resizing, ACPI power management, WiFi support, anti-aliased TrueType fonts, a personal firewall, KDE, and much more.
  3. 3. About SimplyMEPIS SimplyMEPIS is a mature and ready to use desktop operating system for PCs and Apple computers that have Intel or AMD 32 or 64 bit processors. It is easier than Vista and intuitive for XP and Win98 users. SimplyMEPIS includes all of the applications that most users need and want. SimplyMEPIS is designed to replace or work side by side with Vista or XP on PCs and OSX on Apple computers.
  4. 4. History MEPIS was designed as an alternative to SUSE Linux, Red Hat Linux, and Mandriva Linux (formerly Mandrake) which, in the creator Warren Woodford's opinion, were too difficult for the average user. MEPIS's first official release was on May 10, 2003. In 2006, MEPIS made a transition from using Debian packages to using Ubuntu packages. SimplyMEPIS 6.0, released in July 2006, was the first version of MEPIS to incorporate the Ubuntu packages and repositories. SimplyMEPIS 7.0 discontinued the use of Ubuntu binary packages in favor of a combination of MEPIS packaged binaries based on Debian and Ubuntu source code, combined with a Debian Stable OS core and extra packages from Debian package pools.
  5. 5. Name According to Warren Woodford, the name MEPIS is pronounced like "Memphis", with the extra letters removed. Basically, it is pronounced "MEP-us" with a short "e" ("meppis"). Originally, the word "MEPIS" didn't mean anything in particular; it came about by mistake. When Woodford misunderstood a friend over a bad Skype connection, he decided to use the name because it was a simple five-letter word and there were no other companies or products with that name.
  6. 6. Programs, Programs, Programs … SimplyMEPIS 8.0 arrives with a complete choice of the best of programs necessary for most people's pleasure and productivity, all delivered on top of a Debian 5 stable core using the 2.6.27 Linux kernel. We've already included great applications for you, such as the award-winning OpenOffice Writer that provides excellent compatibility with MS-Office, the popular browser Firefox with its great multimedia capability, or the terrific Amarok music player that handles MP3 players without problem. Thousands more software packages are available for free download and painless installation from Debian and our own Community, keeping you on the cutting edge.
  7. 7. Current Variants • SimplyMEPIS, the most popular MEPIS variant, is designed for everyday desktop and laptop computing. SimplyMEPIS 8.0 contains several new packages and features. It includes Linux 2.6.27 and OpenOffice.org 3.0, with other applications available from Debian and the MEPIS Community. It was released on February 22, 2009. • AntiX, a fast, lightweight and flexible distribution available in full or base editions and based on SimplyMEPIS for x86 systems in an environment suitable for old computers. Version 8.0 was released on February 13, 2009.
  8. 8. Overview The MEPIS Linux LiveCD that you have just opened combines a bootable operating system with an installer--that means you can test-run MEPIS Linux directly from this CD without touching your existing Windows system. This way, your current applications and data are not at any risk while you explore and test this new OS. This LiveCD will operate nearly identically to a MEPIS Linux installation on your hard disk, and it presents you with the actual full MEPIS desktop for you to work with. Speed while using the LiveCD will be limited by your computer environment (because it is running from your CD-rom), so please be patient as programs load. Once installed and running from your hard-drive, you will find MEPIS Linux runs very quickly. Once you decide you are ready to try MEPIS, you can then use this CD to install the operating system, either alongside your current operating system ("dual boot") or on its own. We'll guide you through that later.
