After lots of Alpha's, here is the first RC of SimplyMEPIS. And there's allready a review available of it!
Read it here
“The updated MEPIS Network Assistant adds manual configuration for WPA security as an alternative to the automatic configuration via networkmanager. And the release of alsa 1.0.14.rc3 includes support for new sound chips. Some MacTel users should see a big improvement with sound support in this release.”
And the review notes:
SimplyMEPIS 6.5 is definitely the coolest distribution I have reviewed so far. The eye candy is very sweet indeed, but more over it is put together well and simply works. I also like the fact it uses KDE instead of GNOME, but mainly for personal preference.
