Re: What init system do you use on MX, the default (sysVinit) or systemd?

Hope this does not derail anything. Not meant to do so. No reason to incite any flame wars. Could have just clicked a button.
Which is what anticapitalista and I asked everyone to do and post these discussions in the thread that was started for them.

Wouldn't it be easier to buy an internal SSD?

I am trying to see the advantage of converting an external to be internal :)

Re: More from Dedo

Something I've been wondering lately is how hard is it to dist-upgrade MX to the next release?

Re: copyrights on mxlinux ?

I am not in any way expert in these legalities. But Linux itself is licensed, with all the legal terminology. MX is covered under the LInux Foundation Sublicense No. 20140605-0483, as stated in an an earlier post.
