Seldom do I see a distribution that has it all for the workstation user like Mepis. I've been testing out quite a few live CD's lately (mainly because I don't have a computer at work that I can install linux on without the boss telling me "it's a non-standard OS") fortunately I ran across Mepis. It's a Debian based OS with lots of goodies (that normally have to be installed by the user). Mepis installs by default RealPlayer 8.0, Sun's Java VM 1.4.2_02, Macromedia Flash 6.0, Mozilla 1.5 and Open Office 1.1. The live CD works great (disk one of two install disks), check it out for yourself. Mepis can be found at http://www.mepis.org/node/view/2

 

Note: Mandrake better watch it's back, Mepis has more current software and it doesn't require a lot of tweeking. Enjoy!

Something is wrong. I voted hor Morphix, and my vote came out for Suse. I rechecked and I definitely voted for Morphix. ;(

 

I haven't checked out Mepis, though I will now! smile Morphix in my opinion absolutely rocks! I have it installed on my wife's laptop, and it works perfectly with all the hardware except the winmodem. Setting up wireless pc card was a snap! Morphix, doesn't go with the "one-size-fits-all" philosophy of live CD creation, but rather offers the user several different versions of iso's to download that best suits their needs. There's Morphix-Gnome, Morphix-KDE, Morphix-Lite, Morphix-game..etc. Check it out! smile

I tried Mepis last week and liked it. I never saw a better preconfigured desktop distro, it comes even with build-in nVidia 3D drivers 8)

 

However, some hardware (like SCSI) is not supported by the current release

Being new to Linux, I didn't vote cos I haven't seen many different versions. However, I recently tried Knoppix on my Time Laptop and everything seamed to be working ok, even the modem.
