One of the further well-liked Linux distributions, but not one that's offering much of a risk to Ubuntu in terms of fame, Simply MEPIS however has a great deal to mention it. It's the community edition of the MEPIS distribution, and right from the start it sparkle with viable luster.
We downloaded the live CD ISO file, burnt it to disc as well as booted from there. We were soon at an orderly menu that permitted us to contrast the screen refresh rate, opt for an R/W file system, run a memory check or opt for smallest options. Some have complained that, given it's a division aimed at comparative novices, there are too many options here, but we don't buy that. There's an obviously labelled default choice, so we went for that.
Then it's log-in time. This might puzzle novices a little, but the OS offers to log you in at first as a visitor, or as root. Root is usually the one to be avoided as a law in Linux; given that it lets you mess with appealing much everything. It also needs a password that's not instantly observable, but similarly, not complicated to effort out!
The distribution is based on Debian as well as uses the KDE 3.5.10 desktop situation, and this gives you a Mac-a-like menubar at the bottom, along with desktop icons. One of these, as standard, allows you to click on it to set up the operating system to your hard drive, which is quite an easy process.
It didn't take long to do it; also, along with we were at an operational desktop in a short amount of time. The only trouble we had was with wireless networking, which took a bit of fixing, but we did finally get it working. It took a little exertion on our part, and we did experience that basically MEPIS could have made such an everyday task - connecting to a wireless network.
It's not fairly as ready as Ubuntu, but it is backed by a massive store of programs to download and it's an excellent starting point for a computer system. Even so, it'll hand out a somewhat more positive user superior than a Linux debutant.
