Post Whoa there, Trigger!
Got this from Warren tonight:
Quote:
Hi Jerry,

I decided to skip 11.5. I am running a pre-alpha of 12.0, aka 11.9.60.

I'm incredibly busy with about 10 active projects, but I am making some progress on 11.9 every day now. It's installable, with a little manual intervention. And it needs some cleanup.

I hope to have it ready for alpha testing in a few weeks.

Best,

Warren
Surprise!

That makes me think he's jumping to a Wheezy base. Speculation only, but he usually doesn't change version numbers unless he's changing the underlying base:

6.0 Ubuntu 6.06
6.5 Ubuntu 6.06
7.0 Etch
8.0 Lenny
8.5 Lenny
11.0 Squeeze
11.5
12.0 Wheezy???

Is it possible that mepis 12 has ubuntu as base ?

This is just a wild speculation, since a fluid base like wheezy (at current stage, testing phase) is not really a good choice. I will keep my fingers crossed over this.

@Jerry3904

Maybe you can get The Oracle to reveal some details about MEPIS 12; i.e., whether it will still be Debian based (Squeeze, Wheezy, or ...), kernel version, KDE version, and so forth.

No way: no one here wants it, starting with Warren.

It's going to be v12 because we are well in 2012, there's no need for speculations about the base of the distro because of the version number.
