MX 17 Just gotta say


Post by Dieselrider » Sat Jan 06, 2018 1:55 pm

this is the best MX distro so far. I never got around to moving form 15 to 16 although I did burn a disk. So when I saw this was out, I started reading the manual and decided to give it a whirl. Right out of the box this thing was a dream to install and I am very pleased thus far. The development team hit one out of the park with this one.
It used to be a headache to install printers in some distros but not the case here. The only thing I had any problem with was the driver side of my Brother scanner and that was as simple as clicking on the saved driver in my system. The installer opened up, I installed the driver and Bob's your uncle, it worked. Thank you to all who put this together.
Always try to be the best but, never think you are the best.
