MX 15 | MX-15 review - Highway to rad

Full, balanced review by Dedoimedo, published on his blog February 29, 2016. Looks carefully at aesthetic and technical aspects, making thoughtful commentary as he goes along, and praises the distro for its ongoing improvement. Concludes: "Anyhow, really neat. MX Linux has come a long, long way since its early days. It is shaping up to be a really nice distribution, and my biggest fear at this point is that it will die, like so many other distros have died before reaching that critical mass moment. To sum it up, if you're looking for something different, something less avant-garde, whatever that means, or rather, you're fed up with the love triangle of Ubuntu, SUSE and Fedora plus derivatives, then MX-15 might be what you want. Somewhat of an underdog, and a bit scruffy and mongrely at times, but I like the progress. I like the consistent approach. It's a key to greatness. 9/10. It sure has joined my watch shortlist. Worth testing and whatnot. But my fear of the future always remains, please prove me wrong. However, the present is happy, so start downloading and burning them coasters. Dedoimedo out."

MX 15 | Doppelherz: MX Linux kombiniert die Stärken von AntiX und Mepis

Published January 21, 2016 in Linux Community. Ferdinand Thommes provides a penetrating and nuanced review of MX-15 that reveals a thorough knowledge and appreciation of its features. "MX-Linux shows itself as a stable and lightweight distribution on a reliable Debian Stable base that collects many pluses for its user-friendliness ... Many areas of the distribution allow one to see the developers' intention to ease system administration without overloading it in the process. The support for older hardware enables it to be appealing in times of excessive insanity about consumption, and makes users happy who keep such computers in use. An accomplished synthesis of antiX and Mepis distributions, MX Linux really deserves more attention than it currently receives" (translated from the German).

MX 14 | antiX Linux Doesn't Fool Around

Jack M. Germain in Linux Insider reviews MX 14.4 on June 15, 2015. "The antiX Linux distro is an outstanding operating system that performs flawlessly. It lacks the special effects of desktops such as Cinnamon, KDE and Unity, but older computers tend to be unable to run them properly. Linux offers numerous distro choices for legacy computers. antiX Linux, especially the latest release of special edition MX-14, should be at the top of your must-try list."
