I think that alot more users are going to find their way to Mepis as Ubuntu continues it's spiral into bug-oblivion. In an effort to get "closer to Debian," which is known to be rock-stable (even Sid is rock stable compared to Ubuntu), folks who have had trouble installing and/or configuring Debian will look for a "ready-to-use" distro that is
- as much as possible at least - Debian.
KDE4 looks absolutely wonderful! I've always admired the K
-applications and stuff. But it's just too much for my poor ol' hand-me-down hardware. Maybe when I grow up and get rich and can afford a super-powerful mega-computer with a zillion terrabytes of RAM and a transwarp-speed processor I'll give KDE another shot.
Looking for "Mepis Lite?" AntiX looks really cool. And you can add a desktop environment to it if you like (I'm an Xfce fanboy lately, finally settling on it after a year of trial and error.
). On top of AntiX it might be kinda sorta like Crunchbang's new Statler Xfce version (based on Debian Squeeze). Both offer an easier way for some folks to install Debian, too.
Hop hop hop,
(feeling like a bunny from all this hopping)
