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

Review by Jesse Smith in Distrowatch 774(1), published January 1, 2018. Thorough look at MX-17 based on a week of testing. He says that he is very happy with the OS, and that there was little that needed to be changed. His major criticism is that "MX loses out to the big, mainstream Linux distributions is in beginner friendliness," and he signals apps such as the backup utility, the updater and Synaptic.
Review by LINUXANDUBUNTU, December 25, 2017. Good review of MX-17 with many screenshots that focuses on technical procedures. Concludes that it is an "easy-to-use yet powerful that does decent job without including unnecessary software." Also available in Spanish.

Review of MX-17 Beta 1 by Jack M. Germain, published in LinuxInsider Nov 16, 2017. Calling The Beta 1 release "an ideal first-look candidate," the reviewer appreciates the antiX Live system that MX inherits, the combination of standard Xfce tools and software choices, as well as the various MX-specific tools.
