Re: Do you have 32bit packages on your system?

Interesting. My desktop, fully updated from the original MX-18 and with many additional packages, shows no 32-bit packages. My laptop, fully updated from MX-18.3, shows the same list as Jerry.

Re: Using my MX live USB on windows to transfer file

I have had problems recently in accessing a data USB stick from Win10 laptops. When it was plugged in, Win10 offered to format it - that was the only choice.

Re: What are your first steps after installing MX Linux?

The whole document that holds all the instructions for me is 25 pages long, a bit too long to list all that here, this summary is long enough already ;) I'm a great believer in brevity, so my list is one page - a mixture of general and individual items.

Re: Moving Thunderbird Profile from one computer to another

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

I voted sysVinit - I have booted sytemd a few times to see what difference it made. I found nothing significant.

Darn, that would have made a good Youtube video.
We could have Mr and Mrs. Dolphin make one and have a disclaimer, "Actors are playing the parts". ;)
But how do you persuade Windows to update on cue, instead of when MS chooses?
