A very appreciative look at MX-17[.1] by Mike Johnston in CMS Critic on March 18, 2018. He focuses on MX Tools, and features Tweak, Conky and Package Installer, of which he is a "huge fan." Concludes: "Overall, MX Linux 17 is a fast, responsive and well put together distribution. It includes tons of tools to help users and administrators get things done and it's built on a rock solid base with Debian stable."
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."
This blog post accompanies his video on post installation setup for French users. He summarizes the release as "un grand cru" (a great vintage) and "du pur bonheur" (pure joy). He rightfully points to the difficulties now presented by Firefox to switch languages.
Joe Collins makes a knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic tour--and falls in love with the cursor! ;-D
