SimplyMEPIS – a live Linux distribution based on Debian stable and uses the KDE desktop environment.
It can be installed onto a hard drive or used as a Live DVD, which makes it externally bootable for troubleshooting and repairing many operating systems. It offers automatic hardware configuration, NTFS partition resizing, ACPI power management and WiFi support.

MEPIS was started by Warren Woodford and the eponymous company MEPIS LLC in 2002, and the first version was based on Knoppix.
The next releases were based on Debian stable, until version 6.0 (July 2006) and 6.5 which were based on Ubuntu. After that, SimplyMEPIS turned to Debian again.

The last available version of SimplyMEPIS 1.5 was released in July 2012, and was based on Debian “Wheezy”.

There are a few other distributions based on SimplyMEPIS:
– antiX – used very lightweight IceWM and Fluxbox window managers. It was based on SimplyMEPIS which is based on Debian stable, then changed its base to Debian testing. The last version of antiX 15 has been built using Devuan scripts and packages.
– MX – built on the top of antiX by MEPIS and antiX community members; it is based on the packages of Debian stable and uses Xfce desktop environment instead of IceWM.
