Mepis is really a nice GNU/Linux distribution. Special public thanks to miltownkid for the CD!
Whenever I tried to upgrade my distribution through apt-get, it would just mangle everything.
But I also needed a distribution that would recognize my Wacom tablet because it is the most vital piece of equipment I use. So, not only was I surprised when Mepis recognized my Graphire tablet right from first boot, I was also very pleased.
Because all of my graphic applications are open-source* (GIMP, Sodipodi, Inkscape, Blender and more), moving my graphic design environment over to GNU/Linux was a breeze. It all comes together in Mepis. (Though I had to install Sodipodi and Blender afterwards.)

I’m trying to find out what happened to my internet connection. It’s really annoying. I’m not sure whther or not it has anything to do with the ton of internet cafes all around our apartment.
