Article on zdnet, Hands on with MX Linux

#1 Post by m_pav » Fri Sep 07, 2018 6:17 am

Found this news snippet in my Chrome news feed. The authors biggest issue was localisation, and it appears very clear to me they posted this without really looking too deeply into what we really provide and without spending any time here in the forums.

They do make a valid point re localisation from a typical newbies point of view, something I'm sure we can improve on, even if it's to educate on the F key options at live boot to select a different locale before actually running MX Live. Still a positive outcome, even if uneducated.
