Have to agree, the future looks bright.

MX-19 with buster and the new XFCE will be awesome.

The beta of antiX 19, already buster, is looking great and bodes well for the MX instantiation.

I figured not being on here for a year and a half .... I get a lot of people with that thread title. :laugh:

I may not have been on here in awhile but I've been using MX daily for everything outside of my employer required Windows garbage I've had to do.

Very excited to get my hands on MX-19 beta!

Out of interest SwampRabbit, amongst the Windows programs you have to use, is there anything that you could not do as well with Linux software, if you had the freedom to use MX at work instead?

Well, outside of the fact that it is a company laptop that I can't play with, not really. Someone can do everything and more in MX Linux and Linux in general.

Maybe MS Office compatibility (formatting, etc, etc) not being that great with LibreOffice is about it, I have to use Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Visio constantly. I attempted to strictly use the browser based Office 365 to do the work instead from a specific MX laptop for work, but the real problem then became not being able to work on it offline then re upload it without getting messed up.

Showing up at a client and a briefing slide deck being jacked up from incompatibility doesn't help a week long trip start well.
