Hi everyone. I must say I was totally surprised by how good MX-16 is. At the moment I am singing its praises in my own mind
(loads of orchestra and choir playing every time I mess with the system, and it's all singing hallelujah). I have been messing
with linux since around 2001 but have never really reached beyond intermediate level at best, and even now sometimes plummet
to being a level minus-10 noob. I did a lot of reading and research before I made MX16 my main OS. I think that review on
distrowatch was extremely accurate. MX16 is a great distro for those who want to explore beyond Mint and ubuntu.
I am also surprised at how many people post on these forums. In my mind I see the whole Mepis Antix MX thing as being
something I have discovered its like walking into a cave and finding boxes of treasure to be explored

Thank you, and I must say I get a very good vibe by reading the posts on this forum.
I tend to stay loyal to a distro for years but somehow never manage to have an original idea about
the direction a distro should go. The developers in linux always surprise me and judging by what
I have seen so far the Mepis Antix coalition seems to have done a very very great job

Belated welcome swizzle as we communicated in another post. Yes, membership is pretty active here especially by members of the Development Team. So you have access to those who designed the distro directly. And none of them are shy about answering questions or responding to suggestions. This is a feature of MX often overlooked in reviews but is one of its many strong points.

I know I am quite new to this forum and I forgot that there is a welcome thread, so if you didn't hear from me I'd say hello to you community and I am pleased to enjoy my stay here on MX Forums. :happy:

Let me join and say 'Welcome' to everybody! It's good to see you here on the forum.

One great thing about MX is that is user-driven so your input and comments on this forum matter and will probably reflect in the choices we make in the future.
