Re: New user on Facebook

I think we are having a effect on some Mint users also. That said, if I was to introduce one of these distros to someone who has never used Linux before, I once again think I'd choose MX Linux. I say this as I support the operating systems I install. And, historically, I've had zero breakage issues ...
