Re: zRam

Could this be modified for use on MX Linux The zramswap-enabler contains an init script which targets upstart. (It has no "ui". To customize the settings, would need to [use upstart init and] edit the script.) https://bazaar.launchpad.net/~elementary-os/elementaryos/zramswap-enabler/view/head:/debi...

Re: MS Buying Github

That sucks, it will makes collaboration more difficult. Because I haven't used the advanced git features, maybe I'm blind to "how will suck".

Re: Resolution in virtual console

command not found not booted to MX, I didn't realize it's not pre-installed. Maybe it's only effective in live session and is removed during installation? If you care to give it a shot and find out (it's a tiny 69kb package), you can download the debfile http://antixlinux.com/stretch/pool/main/c/co...
