Nov 19, 2010, 10AM EST -- The 8th Anniversary of the MEPIS Linux project is coming up on Sunday. In time for that event, the second Alpha release of SimplyMEPIS 11.0 has been uploaded by Warren Woodford, the founder of MEPIS.
The SimplyMEPIS-CD_10.9.75_32.iso and SimplyMEPIS-CD_10.9.75_64.iso files are available now for download by MEPIS subscribers. They should be available at the global ISO mirrors within 24 hours. They are about 800 MB in size and will fit on DVD or USB media.
11.0 continues to track with Debian Squeeze but with a 2.6.36 kernel. In this release, MEPIS has backported the Galbraith latency patch, which improves desktop performance.
