Beta6 of SimplyMEPIS 32 and 64 is available for testing. Now users can opt-in to choose the NVIDIA 1.0.9746 driver. Ntfs-3g improves Windows filesystem compatibility. NVIDIA legacy version 1.0.9631 is available for Beryl support with older chips.

Warren Woodford of MEPIS says “Linux stands for user choice and freedom, so this latest build of SimplyMEPIS gives users the choice of using the NVIDIA 1.0.9746 driver out-of-the-box. This is not a default, it is an opt-in user choice. Anyone who wishes to use the NVIDIA driver, is free to choose it. If you don't explicitly choose NVIDIA, the driver will lie dormant and unlinked in your running system.”
