I just stumbled across this thread again, & it occurs to me that this remaster might be a good choice for building a server or a VM hosting box. For me, the alternative is a Debian Stable net install. Some off the cuff comparisons ...
Some immediate plusses:
Some possible minuses:
Just my two cent, Mepis is intended to be an easy to use desktop system. In my opinion, a server shouldn't be running X (and therefore also no desktop environment), so the Debian netinstall with just the needed packages is the way to go.
