Here you can post about what you did to get MX to work right with your computer or if hardware worked right out of the box for you. This is for the computers and/or hardware that is normally hard to get working right in Linux or MX.

I've just loaded MX18 onto a 16GB SDHC card to run my 2008 Toshiba Satellite, (2GB ram 1.2GHz Celeron), seems to work well after a slowish boot up to the GUI. :)

W95, that was on my first 'real' computer, a 386sx, I was a very late starter! :)

An 8088!! Ohhh that brings back memories alright.

I was a young'un still when my dad brought home his first PC (which likely then cost as much as a car these days :laugh:)
