MX being added to a Linux chooser list

#1 Post by m_pav » Thu Nov 29, 2018 3:07 am

Found this neat Linux Distro Chooser site today and contacted the person behind it to ask if he'd consider adding MX Linux to his distro chooser. Sent him a link to the MX Linux home page.

He responded really quickly with "looks very interesting" then 5 hours later added a job to their guthub bug tracker and issues team to add MX to their list.

Be interesting to test the results after MX has been added.

That is a good thing to reach as many as because some times a nice and brilliant thing got missed as its not properly advertised.
I just check, https://librehunt.org/distrolist, but it may take some time to add it.

Cool! That's how I got started after Windows failed me for the final time. A distro-chooser sent me to Ubuntu. I'm really glad to see MX available on a distro-chooser now!

The first time I tried to install MX, the installer confused me so much I got scared off and ran back "home" to my Xubuntu-based safe space. I wonder if that super-easy Ubiquity installer would work on Devian-based distros, and if so why don't more of them use it?
