Re: MX Distro for "not new" users

Not just new users.. I can usually make sense out of it, but often I will try to avoid it, or I must have done it before and know the command works and is safe.

Re: MX18 Continuum (Minimal) Release

"English is just behind Spanish, with approximately 360 million native speakers. Spanish is the third most studied language in the world, after English and French. In addition to the 400 million native speakers, just shy of 9 million people around the world speak Spanish as a second language." Serio...

Seriously, most of the world knows English or Spanish these days.
Seriously do you have any figures that substantiate your "theory" ? :rolleyes:

Re: MX18 Continuum (Minimal) Release

@skidoo I suppose I could just pick the major Western languages (1 each for the locales) French, German, English, Italian, Russian (and hope that almost everyone could make sense of that) and then have a note in the readme telling them to use MX Tools to add a language of their preference. I'd chan...

Re: Monitor configuration not remembered

We definitely need something that looks less scary than what I find there in Github.. If this freaks me out it'll scare a newbie. This freaks me out... :frown: Why?
