Mepis is entirely free if you don't want to pay $10 for the CD. Here
are a list of mirrors:
/North American Mirrors/
ftp://flo-jlg.no-ip.org <ftp://flo-jlg.no-ip.org/> (user:mepisfr
/Other Download Sources/
Here is the lastest version of Mepis (released yesterday):
I don't have a md5sum for it.
3.3.1.test01 isn't on the other mirrors, yet, but will be soon.
Here's the announcement:
"Because of our commitment to remain as Debian compatible as possible, we
will switch to X.org and KDE 3.4, when Debian releases those packages."
I'm fond of KDE 3.4, but I imagine you'd be able to get it with apt-get
as soon as Debian releases the packages.

distros like Linspire, Xandros, SUSE and Red Hat. How can such a great
OS come from such a tiny organization in Morgantown, WV?
