Re: Microsofts plan to "Modularize" windows..... is actually a great idea!

it does seem that those that have moved away from the Windows System, & over to some Linux System, did so, for an Reason, - -they now, generally Won't buy an argument from Microsoft, that Microsoft is a-changing itself. & they just Won't Believe that BS. personally, IMHO anyway, there won't be an Bi...

Re: MX is really something special

the MX system does install really well, & it looks really nice,,

Projector - - Extend or Duplicate ?

it's not always that obvious, either as to why you cannot get your Projector to work. :confused: the Linux System should Default to Duplicate, but sometimes it doesn't do so, & you just wind up watching the XFCE screen with That Mouse. :bawling: you can use Control Center to manually detect the Proj...

Re: Important alerts ... email distribution

it seems that I'm inclined to agree with JayM on this one:

Re: Reboot instead of resume from closed lid

typically you can often get resume from sleep/hibernation..
- not an Reboot, as such - - you would have to run an script file, for that option - manually.

Re: MX Linux Reinvents Computer Use

it's an nice review. :happy: Despite MX Linux's origins and some shared antiX core components, MX Linux is not a clone. There are numerous distinctive differences that make each different. Most of those differences are in the OS underpinnings. They are evident in key areas such as the look and feel,...
