Again, this is certainly no exhaustive test. But as a simple kick-the-tires type of test it shows the Simply Mepis 7 has great promise and looks to be an excellent distribution. The support of web-delivered multimedia is as good if not better than Mint. I did not try high-def playback on Mint because of my problems playing back high-def on older releases of openSUSE and Ubuntu (including 7.10). Now that I've seen it work out-of-the-box I expect to see it continue to work on Mepis, and I'll start checking for it on other distributions in the future.
