SimplyMEPIS 7.0 is a keeper

i agree with the review. Having been a long time ubuntu user, i tried simplyMepis and was happy to have all the hardware in my notebook installed and working correctly. That incudes wireless pci card with WPA encryption, something that never happened under Ubuntu. On the same notebook lataest PCLOS did not even have drivers for the wireless card (Texas instruments ACX) let alone connect. So maybe you don't get the latest,shiniest software ala Ubuntu and PCLOS, but what you get will all work reliably.
