That’s how I could have described MEPIS 7 when I dinked around with it a year ago or so. But that’s also why the MEPIS 8 live CD used today was much more disappointing, since it didn’t even boot completely either on the PC or on the laptop before going into “Kernel Panic”, which in terms of bad outcomes is likely outranked only by “Major Disaster” and “General Failure.”
