Yes, highly unlikely breakage will occur from the MX test repo. The confusion I was referring to was with the MX Package Installer/MX Test Repo. At least two reviewers have conflated the it with the Debian test repo. We had a long discussion on dev forum about how to call it to make it clear(er), w...

Re: Ad blocking extension

I am confused. If it is open source what is the issue of adapting the code to put a gui wrap around it?

Re: Makeuseof review

I think it's because I left Win for good right after WinXP that I find articles with a Win focus uninteresting. :( I like MX Linux but not because it looks or behaves 'anything' like Windows. I think it is excellent in its own right. (Just an old opinionated guy... sorry.) Perhaps uninteresting for...

I still like M12 with its excellent KDE usage. With limited ma...
