Re: Site describing MX as a 'product'?

I agree with Old Giza.

Also, instead of "Buy" maybe something like "Order DVD or Flashdrive" or something like would be better to make it clear what you "buy".

Re: nonPAE version of MX-17??

I think the developers consensus was to direct people with non-PAE CPUs to use antiX because that's more appropriate for older machines (or continue to use MX-16). That being said, you could probably install a non-PAE kernel and update the live environment to use that new kernel using live-kernel-up...
