Re: SimplyMEPIS: The best desktop Linux you haven't tried

The first thing I had to get used to is that I cannot comment directly on SimplyMepis, except for clicking on the top comment....strange

My nickname is because I still use windows, windowsweenie is probably in use, so qrazydutch with a "q", as not to upset the real crazies out there.

Been playing with variations of UNIX and LINUX for years, however keep going back to windows since I cannot get my webcam to work and play simple DVDs....how about that. When I check on how to get it going, I ended up having to compile my kernel, recompute the distance between various star systems and dig around in obscure locations (or so it seems). Just trying to load libdvd..or whatever the library of the day (to get DVDs to run) is a challenge. Never mind my Logitech with built in mike, it seems unexplored territory.
So I am ready for abusive comments and obscure guidance..(by the way, I have been in computers since the early 60s, not exactly a rookie)
