Re: Windows 7 (official) Beta 1 released

I tried installing GTA 4 but got a error that it wasn't compatible with the OS. I then installed Civilization 4 and played for about 15 mins before it froze up.

I liked Mepis but I've stuck with Ubuntu and gnome for the last year. I think I'll download the new release and install it on a spare hdd. Do you see much difference with it being based on etch?

Re: Help with Mepis Linux

I think Mepis uses KDE so you would want Kubuntu if you want the same look.

I think the package you need is build-essentials. It has the stuff you need to be able to "make" etc.

I think they are fairly similar, at least for a noob like me. In the same way that XP is similar to Vista but not everything works the same.
