Mepis 7.0 should be final soon.

In 2007 that was a great choice. In 2019, one rarely mentioned distribution that descended from MEPIS, and uses a Debian packaging scheme with stable versions of it's own software builds is antiX.

Version 17 (with updates) is about as solid and stable as anything I use, and it's light, fast, and efficient too, more so than Lubuntu. Though "based" on Debian, it is also arguably more stable than Debian because the specific combination of apps have been tested together for use with older hardware.
