Blog post by Dedoimedo, January 14, 2017. Careful look at Live and Installed sessions, finding much positive. Identifies a number of smaller problems to be worked on: multimedia, icons, etc. Concludes: “MX-16 is a great choice for a lightweight desktop. Xfce has come a long way, and you get all the essentials you expect from a home system. It’s all there, plus good looks, plus speed that rivals anything out there, among the best battery life numbers, great stability, and even some extra unique features like the live session save and MX Tools. A most worthy combo. All in all, 9.5/10. Warmly recommended for testing and sampling.”
