Hi all I was referred here by rokytnji (hope I spelled that correctly) from linuxquestionsorg. I'm a long time user of debian but I had to take an extended break through no choice of my own I'm curious about MX which is why I'm here. Nice to be here.

I've been using some Ubuntu distros for the last couple of months, but I think I found a gold mine when I gave MX a whirl! So far, I am very happy with it and I wish it much success!
This is like Deja Vu all over again.

Hi All.

I just recently heard of MX and decided to give it a try. Installed MX 16.1 on my older laptop. First impression is very good. Installer had no issues. Everything seems to work out of the box.

I have been using Linux off and on for many years now. Almost exclusively Debian derivatives, except some time with Arch. Last few years using Mint Cinnamon. It is nice, but I like the lightness of XFCE. I installed Liquorix kernel last night, and it seems very fast.

Missed this with all the real time drama in my life. You spelled Row-Kit-Knee correctly. :footinmouth:

Shoot: where are manners? Howdy and Welcome everyone.

Hello people, :wavehello: happy to join the MX Linux community. I've been a lurker for several months and I installed MX Linux today just to try it and I think ill be staying with this. I'm looking forward for the next release.

Tons of thanks to the developers, maintainers & everyone involved in making/maintaining this distro and the forum members too. :yay:
:dancingman: Happy MX Linux User!

Hello All,
Been using MX on and off for a couple of years now, lurked here since joining so decided it's time to say hello.
I like Xfce & Debian, Debian based distros, but not a fan of Systemd init, other distros I liked have all made the change so for the moment I'm using MX as my main system.
