"Simply Mepis still works best for me."

In Terminal window type cat /etc/debian_version then hit enter
If your talking about doing that in ubuntu, its too late off the hard disk. I had to restore my previous mbr and all is back as it was. I also realize ubuntu and mepis are debian based. For now I will stick with mepis. It may not have the bells and whistles ubuntu has but I am very pleased with its stability. I just wish packages were made compatible with both OS's. Synaptic in mepis is real good about ensuring all dependencies are included. When I use aptget to install ubutu packages it does not include those dependencies. It does however tell me whats missing, but what a hassle to download each and every lib file etc.
