I suppose it does say deb based in the subject
I'll have to read it over a bit more, as you
have probably mentioned various reasons. But,
i'm wondering what contrasts you found your
self. Concerning those distros. As it's only the
maintenance system and init that will distinguish
Deb is Deb based, isn't it

Whoww, the high and mighty are out, I voted MEPIS it works and is now on two of my nine computers. Just think, you can carry one CD with you, to your Winblow friend's houses and load a working Linux system in five minutes for them to see and play with. You can now SHOW them all the things you have been telling them about Linux in one neat package.
However I do think this one should have been posted in the Newbie forum, not Ded's hard core forum.

Let's move it to the NewBie bored please or should I start a new 1 there with up to date distros choices?
I'm running MEPIS, Libranet and Ubuntu at this present time

I think it would be better to show one's excitement about the what ever it is Based distro in the Newbies zone for the best exposer for those wanting to give Linux a try. That is the area most Winblows users start at and if we can get thier feet wet with these so called "Maintenance Utilities" then maybe we will start seeing a change like Firefox is doing to IE.

i chose knoppix but only for running off the cd i just use it if i travel and wanna take over a win bot.....or it is the best boot disk out there when u bork Grub... and as a general tool box on a cd
but other than that i have no use for it

But you still have a use for it and that is good, "If it boots then perfect", I like Knoppix also but, I now use Mepis:
1. It boots in English, no need for a saved configuration file.
2. It has the tools system on it also.
3. I can load it on a customer's Winblows machine and show them "You bet there is life after Winblows", and be able to load it on the spot for them!
