I was looking for a distro that is great move for microsoft windows users for my dad.
I found MEPIS:
This distro has advantage that it is easier than windows, since all drivers for any kind of hardware are in!!
Nothing to install since all drivers are embedded. To install a printer, you dont even need to struggle with Root and password. The user just kcontrol and the usb printer is found, and really working ! That's amazing.
Programs are not crashing, very stable, and this is very different to Ubuntu where you are on the cutting-bugging-edge where nothing is working.
I tried all kind of webcam, and they also work!! Detected. pendrives are appearing and it is so easy to unplug them/release. It has also ktorrent. A dictionary corrects your english in Firefox, even. !! Amazing!
MEPIS development is very serious, at any sights. Congratulations to the development teams.
The livecd has even Skype and detects all type of cards. Wifi is also working on any machines. Livecd has also xara, kopete, ... amazing job on a single 700mb cdrom. In the boot, one can select r/w 1gb and one can apt-get install programs (Debian based).
To summarize, long life to distros like MEPIS, stable and seriously developped !!!
Happy Tux, in travel
