Mepis Linux

Mepis is an Ubuntu based Linux distribution that can either be run as a live bootable CD or installed to the hard drive; this means you can test it out on your system to see how well it works for you before actually installing it. Mepis comes with over 1100 packages on the install CD and can be easily updated and new software installed using the APT package management system using the synaptic GUI frontend. Mepis runs on i586 and higher processors so requires at the minimum a Pentium processor; it will not run on 386 or 486 systems. It will run on Itanium and AMD64 processors in 32 bit mode.

32 bit and 64 bit? If the processor in your computer is an AMD64 or an Intel64 then you can use the 64 bit version. All other computers should use the 32 bit version. If in doubt about which to buy, choose the 32 bit version as it will work on both types.
