I have used Simply Mepis in the past quite extensively.  It worked well but I 
became disenchanted for some reason and no longer try the new releases. I do 
believe it had something to do with their old versions of prog's. Simply 
Mepis is now a Ubuntu derivetive I believe, so why not Ubuntu [ Kubuntu ].

All the current distros are quite good, many if not most will run in 'live' 
mode so you can try them out on your hardware. I am happiest in a Debian 
environment, and my preference for 'cutting edge' has me currently with the 
distro credited below. I do have Fedora Core6 and SuSE 10.2 on my computers 
and both are stable and have lots of support. Debian repositories probably 
have the most up to date software. 

Distro choice has become what we are comfortable with for administration and 
is pretty personal.  Good luck finding what suits you.
