Hitting the Internet this week have been several Linux distribution releases that aren't as attention-drawing as Ubuntu but they are still worth mentioning. Some of the new releases this week include SimplyMEPIS 6.5, Linux Mint 2.2 (Light and KDE), Damn Small Linux 3.3, Mandriva Linux 2007.1 RC3, and Arch Linux 0.8. Over the Easter weekend if you have some extra time it could be worth it to experiment with one or more of them if you are still trying to find the perfect Linux distribution. This week at Phoronix we also checked out the MyahOS 3.0 Tech Demo 1. While we will be publishing less articles over the holiday weekend, there will continue to be action on the Phoronix Forums.
