If I were to want to use an antiX XFCE, I would want the full blown offerings with all of the extras.
Same here, I don't want to hunt for random packages to have a complete experience. If I think there is too much bloat I simply uninstall it. I think your screenshots look good. :puppy:

Re: Systemd free MX19?

Strange thought:- If MX19 is made without the systemd-init option, it will be very similar to Devuan :alien: . And if it is made without the sysv-init option, some people might prefer Devuan :frown: . P.S. I have tried out Devuan live and it works quite well even without its 245 updates! antiX is m...

I'd add, what would you choose if your apps and other parts of your computer Only work with systemd?
Windows and antiX. Windows when I can't figure out how to do something with antiX.

Nice! That is a good reminder to think about the hardware--i sometimes get the feeling that everyone dies better than I do...
I don't die well at all. ;)

I don't see how Wayland is "locking down the system" in any way.
If you use Wayland you'll get better answers than I can give you. You can think of "locking down" as "not compatible - has to be rewritten".

Re: Wayland in Buster

I don't see how the system is "locked down" if xwayland allows X-based applications to run. If you keep using Wayland, you'll notice that there are limitations you don't have under X.org. Distros being somewhat dishonest try to inflict those limitations on X.org too. They tried to remove Synaptic f...

Re: Wayland in Buster

I think Wayland will be a mess. Have you actually tried it? I've been testing Debian buster since the freeze started and Wayland seems absolutely fine to me, the only reason I've switched to X is because xterm won't load it's resources under Wayland and Firefox tears (slightly) with my Intel graphi...

Re: Google, Apple and Microsoft.

It's an "evil" world and those corporations are part of it just like Red Hat and Canonical. They do some good, some bad. Money talks is an accurate expression and when you reach a certain level you either accept the rules or step down. Many well-meaning individuals working for these companies, thoug...

Re: Wayland in Buster

Debian should consider what Ubuntu did, make an X fallback Please read my last post in this thread. The default is usually considered the stable option. Ubuntu 20.04 won't ship Wayland as default because of that. I think Wayland will be a mess. The smartphone desktop is here. I don't know how Chrom...

Re: Why XFCE?

The top and bottom panels do not appear most of the time during initial boot up whether I've booted systemd or not. I clicked on the top and then both panels appeared and everything was normal after that. It did when I booted just now using systemd. But, since most Linux disros are using systemd as...
