Re: Replace Linux Mint with MX and keep windows dual boot

I know nothing of Slackware. Can Slackware install a .deb file? Using Gdebi maybe?

Re: Replace Linux Mint with MX and keep windows dual boot

In reply to: MX Linux is the only systemd-less OS that uses XFCE. SalixOS is my second-favorite distro. Slackware-based, simple enough for a technophobic kid, Xfce desktop, and completely systemd-free. I'm sure there is an Xfce community spin of PCLinuxOS as well, also completely unencumbered by sys...

Re: Makeuseof review
