My Days at MEPIS
Well, this is a bit frustrating...can't really find much time to post anything, so I'm stuck here, sitting at work writing this while waiting for a scan to complete.
Short update: work is awsome, I love it so far. Also, finally gave up on my wife's computer and gutted it, replacing most of the guts with new parts. Upon trying to install Fedora 10 again, I kept having lock up conflicts between the installer and the on-board video, even in text mode. I'm sorry, but if they can't even get text mode to work, they are too bleeding edge. So, I set out to find a new distro to put her on, and after some consideration, I settled on one that I've not worked with before but is highly rated as an easy-to-use, easy-to-maintain and most of all stable. What is this fabulous distro that isn't one with the Beast (Microsoft)?
SimplyMEPIS is the name, and version 8.0 is based around Debian 5 stable, which is more than enough to sell me. Debian is known for slower development, which translates to more stable and more reliable systems. Anyway, I won't bore you with the details, but after getting it up on her system, I like it so well that I think I will install it on my laptop.
Anyway, that's all I have for now. Cheers!
