Now, this is an interesting one: You can vote your opinion on Mepis.org on whether MEPIS should use the new DCC Kernel, which plans to use Ubuntu sources for the next kernel?
Yes, it's asked right here
There's a new DCC kernel in the works and we want your opinion. Warren builds the kernels for the DCC, which previously have been from Debian sources. However, the DCC plans to use Ubuntu sources for the next kernel. We think that the Ubuntu kernel may offer better hardware support. This leaves the question of whether or not MEPIS should switch to the new Ubuntu-based DCC kernel, or stay with our own Debian-based kernel.
