Hello All,

This is my first post here.
I think that have found my best daily OS as MX Linux here :)

Why I love MX linux:
- low hardware spec requirements,
- based on Debian,
- out of box with XFCE and Conky :number1:
- great group of preinstalled software (I never seen before in other distro that much of usefully soft and zero bloatware),
- MX is like "plug & play",
- Sentence in MX manual has stolen my heart: "it is much easier for advanced users to remove these drivers than it is for regular users to install them. And it's particularly difficult to install a driver for network card without Internet access!".

Fingers crossed with my forward journey with MX Linux here :crossfingers:

Wish all the best to MX Team! :happybday:

Welcome!

The Debian base, without the systemd init, was the deciding factor for me, once I saw how easy MX is to use, even for a technophobic user like me! And the Xfce desktop is highly modified so it's especially useful. I think it's the most intuitive out-of-the-box setup there is. Then there's that wonderful tool set on top of everything else!

Not many distros have forums where the devs regularly visit and provide info and help to newcomers, but MX is known for that as well. I "lurked" here for a bit before joining, and found several key tips and helpful hints just by browsing, and without even asking.

Awesome distro, awesome support. Welcome to the best of the best!

Welcome here

Btw, since you didn't even mentioned most important thing antiX/MX have, you are in for a treat and you will like MX even better after time goes by.

Check out MX snapshot.
Have you set up your system in another Linux distro exactly how you wanted it, then you needed to get set up second computer and you wanted that you could easy just move everything to your new/next computer? Well, with MX Snapshot you can.

You can create your exact copy and store it into install-able iso file. With only few mouse clicks. You will preserve everything, documents, pictures, installed programs, email accounts (if you are using email client).

Maybe your friend was at your place and saw your system and asked you, can you set my computer the same way as is yours. Well you can do that too, with the same MX Snapshot, you just need to tick one check-mark, and your iso will now be set for 'distribution'. Cool a? ;-)

There is of course more. With MX Live USB Maker you can use this your snapshot and set your system to run it from USB stick and it works as persistent. You basically carry around your whole system on USB memory stick as you would carry around your laptop. You can update system, change kernel, save documents...

And yes, there is more, just check MX Tools :wink:
