Post Updated Wikipedia articles
I've updated the following foreign language Wikipedia MEPIS articles:
Català, Cesky, Español, Français, Italiano, Lietuvi, Norsk, Simple English, Suomi, Svenska, Tieng Viet.
Changed "Mepislovers" to MEPIS Community Forum and updated latest release, where necessary.
Just can't stand seeing M 3.4-3 as the latest release.
Some language difficulties stopped me from adding the forum link to all, but more work can be done when M11 comes.
Special thanks to the Chinese and Japanese users for keeping their articles updated. That should have been a problem for me.

Since German is not on your list, I will take a look at that one.

It looked pretty good to me. Thought the Documentation team kept an eye on the English and German versions.

It does look good, though I don't know who is responsible for the work...given the detailed description of SphinxOS, though, I suspect the hand of Ko is behind this.

Where did this come from:

SimplyMEPIS (Managerial, Educational and Personal Information Systems)
Have I been missing something all this time?

I think at some point Warren tried to come with a backronym, I think it was in the form of "It might mean Managerial, Educational and Personal Information Systems" but I don't think it was anything definitive.

You can see it in some early material from 2003. And lots of funny slogans. "Tux like an Egyptian" etc.
