Yup, just not very quickly.

Maybe he should reconsider and start on M12, using Wheezy as a base......;-)....?
I'd love that as an interim release: a finely configured Mepis 11.5 based on testing.
To be followed by the M12 release based on "Stable Wheezy".
A Squeeze-based M11.5 release would probably be a very short-lived experience:
In less than a year (approx.) Wheezy will be the new stable Debian release. Wheezy currently already uses a fairly up-to-date kernel 3.2.x.

Good idea, Not sure what his intent is, though I suspect it includes doing the least work possible while he is chasing income.

<grin>

I suspect this won't be an easy update. Newer kernel and newer DTE backported to Squeeze... I don't claim to know much, but it sounds like a challenge. But I have faith...

Surprises are not necessarily bad.

I agree.
On my test-system I have M11 and both Debian KDE Wheezy (testing; kde 4.6.5) with its blazingly fast 3.2.6-1 kernel and (sid based) Siduction with (currently) kernel 3.2.7 and KDE 4.7.2 (all 64bits)
I was very positively surprised by both booting speed and general responsiveness of Debian Wheezy. It's the fastest, most responsive Linux I've seen in years.
Siduction is fine, but only ' while it lasts' probably...:-)
Yes, all debian+kde flavors are there on my testsystem: stable, testing and sid....:-)

Good I am glad you have faith, because you never know what is around the corner, a question, why would you want to backport a newer DTE to squeeze,
Squeeze based with KDE 4.7.4, plus a dash of 4.8, with Grub2, working to get it so you select the correct locale and keyboard when installing.
