  1. How is MEPIS different from Ubuntu? It sounds like it uses KDE and includes things like MP3 codecs and stuff? Any other differences?

  2. Marc,

    My previous experience with Mepis was quite good. It was stable system and good hardware detection (or tweaks). Now them just made it better with large application pool.

    This is may be to avoid switch to Ubuntu Live CD.
