I am new on this forum so just a short post to say hello. I have used Linux for around 15 years and have just found MX which suits my ageing AMD desktop fine so well done and keep up the good work guys. :number1:

Just a thought what about a section for newbies to introduce themselves?

Hi! Welcome!

MX is awesome for a lot of older hardware. And I have antiX around for the reeeeeally old 32-bit machines I still have, because I hate to throw away perfectly good stuff.

This forum is about the best one you can find for any Linux distro. And it's one of the very few where the devs actually pop in a lot to answer questions and even requests for software and stuff. You'll love it!
