Subject description: Netflix ready out-of-the-box
 

http://simplicitylinux.org/

What is interesting with this release is Netflix available out-of-the-box. Moreover, a 64-bit release with KDE desktop is also available.

Here's a short note about it :

The final release version of Simplicity Linux 15.1 is finally available for download. Simplicity 15.1 is based on Slacko, and uses the LXDE desktop environment for Netbook and Desktop editions. Also, we are proud to announce the release of our first 64-bit Edition: X. X 15.1 is a 64-bit only release and uses KDE as it’s desktop. Netbook and Desktop Editions are our only 32 bit releases for this cycle. One thing we are particularly pleased to bring you this release cycle is the fact that Simplicity Linux can view Netflix content straight out the box. You do not need to update libraries, change agent strings, or anything else. Just use the shortcut or use Chrome to view Netflix content

A cutdown version is available for netbook (300mb).

I searched for the word "puppy" in your post above as well as in the front page of your website. "Puppy" appeared only once, in the discussion of your beta version.

You can help your users by:

1. Indicating which Puppy Linux release and version your distro is based on (you said Slacko, but which version). You should indicate this in your final announcement, not just in the Beta release.

2. Indicating clearly where users can get support, which must be here:
http://sourceforge.net/p/simplicitylinux/discussion/

These suggestions are meant to help you (1) justify your coming here to post your announcement and (2) give your users relevant support.

Subject description: I tried it.
 

I downloaded and tried Simplicity Linux 15.1 desktop version this morning.

On my HP Pavilion 1017 it was very nice, fast and everything I tried worked.

On my All Intel Toshiba Satellite c55t, not so. The distro's kernel is v3.4 and most everything on my Toshiba needs v3.10. So I had no wifi and poorer graphics. The wcpufreq is v.91 which is much better than v.81 with this processor.
