Re: MX Linux & antiX aren't that good of distros

It's a perfectly boring distro. No issues, no problems to solve, no interruptions to deal with the OS in the middle of my work. Boorrrrrinnnnng. That's exactly what I need! All my college coursework (so far) has been done in LibreOffice, saved in Microsoft format and/or pdf file format to fully reta...

Re: MX Linux - The New Distro King?

Those titles are for fanboys, not for the rest of us. A fanboy might name his favorite distro Bestest, Most Wonderfulest and Awesomeful Distro in the History of Ever even if it's full of bugs and unstable as all getout. I know some Manjaro users like this, and some Mint users, and of course 'Buntu (...

Re: Interesting

Still, the idea is kinda clever, and it highlights reasons why someone might want to convert to Linux from one of those proprietary OSes.

Re: What Linux Needs To Do To Reach The Masses.

I'm kinda like Malspa as far as this goes: Why do we need to appeal to "the masses" anyway? I use Linux to keep older hardware going strong, and I'm not a gamer like most computer users my age. I used to be a "Linux evangelist," always looking for opportunities to "convert" my friends, family, and s...

Re: Snapd? Is it just a pipe dream on anything but Ubuntu?

Snaps is too new for me to trust it. Same with Flatpacks. Nothing beats good ol' apt-get. But I think it's cool that people are working on ways to make applications distro-independent.

Re: antiX-17.4.1 now out

Yup! antiX is a completely separate distro, also based on Debian and partners with MX. Actually the name MX borrows from it's parent, Mepis, and the X is from antiX. Common heritage, both awesome!
