I have worked in the industry as a consultant and programmer for too many years to want to think about it (but it's over 30!). A lot of my work was done with Berkely and SCO Unix, so when I got a computer for home use I used SCO, but I had multi-boot as there were things in Windows I was familiar with, and needed to use. But some 18 months ago I took the plunge and went to Mepis Linux. It's simply fantastic.

But the point of this post - I have finally got around to looking in depth at some of the KDE utilities in depth. Many stand out as extremely good, and I no longer have those massive manuals that give the options for cpand so on, in fact I just put 18 inches of manuals in the re-cycling.

But to the point of this post - AMAROK. It's truly an amazing piece of programming. I think I was pretty good at what I did, but if I had ever written anything like this, I would have been proud indeed, and doubled my rates!

Why anyone would want to pay for Micro**** when there's functions like this in Linux depresses me as to the human condition. Truly beautiful programming, thankyou for a wonderful product.

I am fascinated by the power of Linux and Mepis in particular. I have been using Mepis exclusively for 6 or 7 years and installing each new version is an adventure. I have found that after a new install--after basic configuration of such items as time zone, printer, browser, multimedia and installing a few favorite apps--that as specific needs arise, I research the Mepis manuals, wiki, forums and community to find what I need and install the necessary packages and apps.
In many forums on the Internet, help and advice is given to amateurs by amateurs or the blind leading the blind. In the Mepis documentation and those giving advice and help there are seasoned experts that give solid, sound, to-the-point help that gets problems solved in short order. There are very few false leads. Many don't realize the power of Mepis and its community. The Mepis community makes even a late comer to computers feel like an "expert" in my own small world of limited knowledge and understanding. I take my hat off to all who are committed to this exciting endeavor.

I'm 17 and I've been using Mepis 8.5 for a couple weeks and I must say that I'm impressed. I came from a Windows OS, much like the rest of us. My preferred OS was Windows XP Pro SP2. However, I wanted something that was more up to date so I did some hunting around for a usable Linux replacement. I do have to say that I kinda stumbled into Mepis. I was half asleep when I downloaded it. Well, I find Mepis 8.5 to be the best Linux distro I've tried. I was a Ubuntu user in 9th grade, however that had issues for me and forced me back to XP. Anyway, Mepis has replaced XP as my OS of choice. I have made a complete switch and am pretty impressed despite some of Linux's shortcommings (nothing's perfect).

I have Mepis 8.5 installed on a Dell Inspiron 2500 with 384MB ram. This sucker is 10 years old (originally sold with Windows ME!!!) but it is reliable and fast - not dual core Pentium with 4GB Ram fast but fast enough for word processing, browsing, a bit of photo editing and playing music on Amarok. And don't you just love the feel of a solid laptop with a good old clicky keyboard!! And the cost - it was a throwaway from a client who just bought a new dual core pentium laptop with 4GB ram and Windows 7 Pro. I think I got the better deal!!
