You have an answer to any question, don't you Jerry?
That does not sound like a compliment...

BTW: I have MEPIS 7, but can't find 6.5
Oh but it is Jerry, I'm glad I don't have to wait very long for an answer! Thanks a million!

Hi Fibogacci,

It looks quite nice with your current setup indeed!
Video tutorials about MX? Wow, would be great to take a look at, do you have some tutorials online already/YouTube?

Best regards, Ruud.
Actually, I have, but they are generally all in Polish (because these tutorials (channel) are directed to Polish users to promote MX and to educate about Linux and Open Source - that's the main idea).

Maybe some day I will be doing dual versions PL and EN (which is quite a good idea) ;)

Anyway, they can still be useful for wide audience (not only Polish users) as an example of what MX can do with even low spec computers.

For example, two days ago I published screencast (nearly 40 minutes) from machine with Pentium 4 1.8 GHz and 512 MB RAM. Even with such a low specification MX (and old computer) can be useful.

My channel about MX (and antiX as well) can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_99vL ... gumc0CgV6w

@Ruud just a thought but since so many wallpapers tend towards gray/ black.... it might be nice to have some that are still dark, but more brown, red, green, blue in flavor.

MX is great on older PC's indeed, look at my signature, they're both from early 2000s.

You're right manyroads, but since this subject was called Dark Ages... ;) But thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Most certainly there'll be other colours, I've only ust started producing, be patient. ;)

I hope you get to creating humorous papers... like this one from manjaro (I loved it... so did my grandson). https://tinyurl.com/yxzpkozw
