MX is making me lazy

Doing a fresh Linux install tonight on a 500 gb hard drive I took out of a machine and put into my T410 Thinkpad. I had the Debian 9 usb booted up, it was looking for my hardware, and I got to thinking about everything I needed to do to set it up. Then I got to thinking how easy it would be to just boot up MX 18 instead, how I just quickly use MX package installer to add Chrome, Pithos, and MX Codecs Installer would also save me time. So I decided my time would be best spent doing other things and installed MX 18 :) You guys make Linux too easy.

Yup - MX is a solid, stable system.
- for those of us, who do like stability, of course.

That's very right, i am now finding other distros little painful, as they need some things to do after installing it. :lipsrsealed:
MX is straight forward, ready and stable.
Not one error message and every thing one need is available on one click, starting from multimedia to root things..
Wifi, mobiles, all devices just run, simply run. Nothing to search and install except some particular apps for individual usage. But default application selection is a ready to go for any basic stuff and very well selected. MX tools is a Gem.
Once i used to this MX, others now feel painful :happy:
Kernel: 4.15.0-1-amd64 64 bits/ Desktop: Xfce 4.12.3/ Distro: MX-17.1_x64 Horizon March 14 2018/ Mobo: Gigabyte model: GA-78LMT-S2PT/ Machine Type: Desktop/ CPU:Quad Core model: AMD FX-4300/ Graphics:AMD RS780L [Radeon 3000]/ Memory: 3.36 GiB

Yes, I'm hard pressed to find a reason to use anything else :) Why make life hard on myself? Just use MX :)
It is not a surprise to me that it's climbing to the top of Distrowatch.

I've got an unused partition on one of my laptops. This weekend I had the idea of trying another distro in a dual boot with MX just for fun and to perhaps use as an alternative. I tried several but found something to dislike about all of them shortly after installation, except for Solus. It's still there but I don't even know if I will do anything with it. MX has spoiled me. It just works. It gives me no grief. It's why it's on all my machines.

It's a perfectly boring operating system.

There's no drama, there are no surprises, no interruptions. Absolutely nothing to make it command my attention while I'm in the middle of working on something for school or work. It just sits there while I run applications instead of the OS. 9_9

Yawwwwwnnn.

Yes! That's exactly what an OS should be, except for tinkerers and developers.
