Re: Couple questions about upgrading and using root over sudo for the GUI installers

Hey all Just got a couple questions: Do you upgrade your MX Linux via apt-update apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade or do you have to install a clean version of MX Linux when Buster comes out? Is that why the installer has that option to keep your home folder intact? Also, I'm used to just use...

When did you start using Linux and why?

I met Linux at the turn of the millennium. The first release was a Red Hat that ran at a gateway to my workplace at that time. Suse followed. I got to know Debian later. It was a tool for gaining experience. Then came Linux Mint four years ago, later last year Manjaro and Antergos. I heard Antix at ...

Re: Why is MX Linux so successful and popular?

Perfect confluence of events. MX has been awesome since the MX-17 release IMO. It was good before that, but at MX-18 it is truly awesome. It has gotten better with each release, is dead simple to install and use, and MX got Xfce desktop right. But other things outside of MX has helped. While MX has...

Re: Why is MX Linux so successful and popular?

Well I'm using Linux from over a decade, 1st try even in the early ninetees with Mandrake (1995) ... I used a lot of distros and Desktop Environments, for the DE's I can say KDE is beautiful but still not stable and a little bit chaotic for changes, Cinnamon - even latest version still freezes (tri...

Re: Why is MX Linux so successful and popular?

MX Linux is so popular because it just works and is solid as a rock! MX Tools and Tweak makes live easy. The support you receive is top notch. The moderators do an excellent job of keeping the MX forum civil thanks to the forum rules set in place. The simplicity of MX Linux seems to be its greatness.

Re: Why is MX Linux so successful and popular?

Yes, so in a way, our success is based on our prior lack of success. We had a chance to improve the system and work out many kinks before getting overwhelmed with users. So now you have to pay the price of success. You will be overwhelmed by many more users in the coming months! :number1: Hopefully...

Why is MX Linux so successful and popular?

Then first my own story. I used Debian for a long time. Then I switched to Linux Mint. I started testing Manjaro three years ago, and this year I installed it on one of my machines. At a local Linux Mint community forum I read about a small distribution called MX Linux. Then I remembered that I had ...

Re: Modern browsers and Flash

I know that the two browsers I use, Firefox and Opera, both require the user to enable flash the first time it is encountered. I would like to generalize this, and would like to hear what other browsers do. Thinking of using it in the Manual... TIA Almost these two types of browsers are on the mark...
