Also the new 7.0 beta has KDE 4 in it.

Thank God. Mepis is such a sweet little distro. I was very impressed even with its early builds.

Same here, although I dumped it when they went to Ubuntu. Warren and team produced a winner with Mepis, although I just have to get rid of KDE before I do anything else.

I love KDE, it's better than Gnome to me. Gnome may be a little faster, but KDE is more friendly. Especially to windows converts.

I think they messed up by going to Ubuntu also. With the Debian distros, everything worked.

Yeah, KDE really does ease the move from windows, no doubt there.
