Mepis has been known for some time now for creating a very solid usable Debian based distro which has been worked and reworked into a unique and very easy to like Live-CD based Distro. MepisLite takes this to a new level by working out the bloat from the base in order to allow it to run smoothly and reliably on older equipment. According to the website: MEPISLite offers the 2.4.29 and 2.6.10 kernels because they seem to work better with older hardware. There are no plans to upgrade to a newer 2.6 kernel at this time. MEPISLite is an entry level version of desktop MEPIS designed for home users. It has been used successfully with as little as a 2 GB hard drive and a Pentium 2 processor with 128MB of RAM. MEPISLite preinstalls a full complement of software including KOffice, Kontact, and Firefox.
