Re: Daily use of MX Linux (and Antix if you use it as well)

I guess I would add that I use Linux (MX and antiX) for a few additional items beyond those commonly mentioned less frequently including: -- web development (Wordpress almost exclusively) -- website management (18 Wordpress sites) -- genealogy research -- historical research -- authoring/ blogging -...

Re: What is the best dock to use with MX?

I tried all of the docks in the MX Package installer. Cairo is way more than I want from a dock. Docky,and plank has a weird artifact that seems like a window setting is wrong because its the same on both docks. http://i65.tinypic.com/29v3td.png I ended up using xfce panel because it just works. th...

Re: What is the best dock to use with MX?

I don't see much difference between a dock and a good ol' Xfce panel with launchers on it. I just make that panel transparent and just put launchers for my favorite apps in it. Why would a dock be better? If what you want is a decent, usable, low resource tool and are willing to accept a lower amou...

Re: What is the best dock to use with MX?

[...] Do note I understand why this is and yes one must favour stability over eye candy but there can be a balance. I have written about that exact subject here in numerous threads. I have also built dozens of desktops for use by anyone who wants desktops that do both. As for Xfce being out dated, ...

Re: Dark ages... for Netbooks

@Ruud just a thought but since so many wallpapers tend towards gray/ black.... it might be nice to have some that are still dark, but more brown, red, green, blue in flavor. You're right manyroads, but since this subject was called Dark Ages... ;) But thanks for sharing your thoughts! Most certainl...

Re: What is the best dock to use with MX?

Gotta say that my move to just using xfce panels (away from Plank) is working fine. Not as much eye-candy with xfce only but not bad. I also make heavy use of kupfer or synapse as a quick finder/ launcher. Kupfer seems a tad lighter but a bit less pretty. Always a trade-off. What can I say...
