new to mx-linux - i have used OpenSuse for more than 10 years - Manjaro for more than 1 year and now i want to test mx.
it is a bit confusing to find the correct installation-version of mx.
if we take this site: http://mxrepo.com/
we have lots of information - #
and so forth - and there are listed many many downloads here on this page.Welcome to the MX Repository and Mepis Community Repository at teharris.net.
MEPIS is a Gnu/Linux distribution based on Debian stable with KDE. This made it a very solid Operating System and Warren Woodford's skillful implementation made it easy to install and use.
However, working from a stable base sometimes means having older versions of some programs and not having some newer programs at all. That's where the Mepis Community stepped up. The Community Packaging Team backported many newer packages that Mepis users wanted. This Community Repository was the result of those efforts.
MEPIS is no longer being developed - The MEPIS 12 beta2 iso was the last release - but it is still being used, so these repositories are still being updated.
MX was born from the MEPIS and AntiX communities once it was clear no more MEPIS releases were coming. It is also based on debian stable but uses XFCE instead of KDE. It is a middle weight distribution that runs well on older computers and simply flies on newer ones. It has many custom utilities including tools for easy remastering and tools that make it easy to run MX from a flash drive with persistent home and/or root file systems for those who don't want to install to a hard drive.
I took the dl from here - and downloaded this version
guess so - that this is correct and i am able to work with this version.
i want to test it - as a live-version on a notebook
many thanks for bringing MX linux to the public
keep up the great job
