MX-17 | MX Linux: Worth a Look
A technically-oriented review posted by Robert Dinse in Eskimo North on March 18, 2018. Looks at the use of SysV as init in comparison with systemd, likes the monthly snapshots, and appreciates the availability of multiple desktops. He concludees: “They’ve basically taken Debian and fixed all it’s flaws, it’s slow boot, it’s lack of up to date things that are critical, and fixed the boot process to one that is ideal compromise between systemd and system-V init.”
