It has been a while since I have posted here, but this topic thread caught
Anyway, I attempted Debian a while back and was a little shocked at how
behind it was, though very stable. However, I wanted to use a debian style
distro primairly because of its ease of use (or at least to me --- nothing
is better than: apt-get install <package name> and poof, all dependencies
and configuration is mostly done for you).
However, I had some issues with some of my hardware and did not want to take
the time to get another kernel, configure it and get it installed. SO......
What did I do??? I found Mepis (www.mepis.org). Their newest release (Simply
Mepis 2004 R3, I believe) is slick... it even picked my wireless card out of
the lineup w/o me even having to configure it (plus, the card is a D-Link
DLW-650+ which I have read will NOT work with linux).
Anyway, Mepis is a debian style distro that is very up to date.... and worth
taking a look at...
Just my $0.02
