LOL it was not really a choice after all the trouble I had. I was trying Mepis 11 but when I redid my Box I went to 8.5 and right now I will stay with it.
It is stable. Yes 11 is also stable but there are a lot of things here i can do. I do graphics and I see a lot that might be done here if the users like what I do. First I have to reconstruct my other system first before I start doing graphics again. I lost a lot of graphics and I have to redo a lot of them before I start posting again. :>)
