anticapitalista was the lead developer of MX in its early years and even with all of the existing antiX tools, he put in massive amounts of work to get it off the ground and working in an incredibly short period of time. I think anticapitalista and I both suffered from burn out when we were trying to get out two distros per year. I vastly underestimated the amount of extra work it would take.

I'm delighted by our success with MX. After skipping an antiX-18 release, I'm hoping antiX-19 will help antiX rise a little in the rankings too.

Congrats! Thank you for your hard work and all the help you Devs provide on the forum. And don't get burned out! Keep the balance. (I run a small business with my wife and I understand burn-out!)

Great job with MX and antiX!

Now to MX Linux.


Well; what a quality distro you've made, Team! .You must be extremely proud.

It didn't just suddenly take off to space. .It rocketed away with super boosters attached. .THAT is a sign of the quality thing you made.

Remember; Debian (Mephis and Antix) is your foundation, and that is important.

However what you have put together is - without doubt now - THE BEST!! .So, Congratulations!

Please keep up the great work. .I hope someone steps in to offer some (no-strings-attached) financial backing for you.

Don't lose sight of how you got here, and who is looking up to you. .(Mostly, it's us, the Users.)


Simply, BRILLIANT!



Sincere Regards.

Well.... comment number 18 on DW doesn't seem to agree...

"MX is probalbly one of the worst preconfigured Linux distributions ever and it looks awfull.
For those who can fix it, it'll work though."


Which proves you don't have to be able to spell to have an opinion. :biggrin:


Congrats, MX Linux.

With that kind of work you've delivered and the kind support, it couldn't really turn out in any other way, could it? :hug:

Amen to everything above. Here's hoping to a great antiX-19 release, especially with the introduction of the new rescue tools (and improved installer?).
