I Have Occasionally Wondered....

#1 Post by greywolf » Fri Dec 22, 2017 9:39 am

I have occasionally wondered why it takes as long as it does for a new Antix & MX version to emerge after a Debian Stable release? Just occasionally mind; and then I go back to using the previous rock solid, superlative version I'm already using and forget my mad moment of impatience. The patient wait then continues. THEN;
out comes the super fast & efficient Antix which I quickly update on all my older limited hardware clients, followed soon by the new MX, which now goes on nearly every other client. I then know exactly why I waited!

You folks really are the best at what you do! Having now distributed the new versions around and been using them for a while, I (we) are amazed at the class of your output. The value you add and the quality of those enhancements is quite simply superb. This is how productive computing should always be. You are a classy team producing classy products.

Well done again, and thank you so much!

Thanks for the link. I think I do remember reading that, amongst the senior moments :)

As my adored grandma used to say; "all good things come to those who wait". I LOVE MX, as I did Mepis KDE for so long.
