Warren explained some other changes, “SimplyMEPIS now includes amarok and kplayer in addition to kaffeine. This gives us the capability to play a very wide range of movie and music files and streams.” “We've removed gtkpod since amarok also works with ipod. And we removed xmms because it's redundant in our current configuration. Anyone wanting those apps can easily install them.”

Warren continued, “To make room for amarok we had to take out something big. After consulting with some members of the community, we decided to take out Acrobat. But we made sure Kpdf and Kghostview were configured to do the best job possible. Anyone wanting our packaging of acroread can install it from the MEPIS pool.”
