Is MX 18 going to inherit anything immediately from Buster?
In other words is MX 18 getting anything from Buster anytime soon that isn't already being worked on?
(I know that MX 19 will be based on Buster)

No, not any more than the normal flow of userspace programs we backport from upstream Debian.

MX 19 test ISOs will have many packages on them or available in our repo that will be even more recent than Buster has available, as we usually do. The big one will be XFCE 4.14, but we'll also have a newer GIMP on the ISO, and Kdenlive 19.04.2 has just been added to the MX 19 repo. (so much for the reviewers that call MX just a rebundled Debian stable)

My second favorite distro--Debian Stable (vanilla) :)
I've been regularly using it on 3 computers for more than a month, so not as auspicious for me. It's been very solid as you would expect. Not like unnamed distros that are only safe to use after a point release or two if then.

MX is going to have another solid base to release on and continue its great reliability reputation. I was a bit worried that Debian 10 would be bulkier, slower, boot slower, all based upon the slug Ubuntu has become. I feared gtk3 might be adding bloat, etc. But I see none of that on Buster. I've used KDE, MATE, and especially Xfce on Buster, testing it, for the past few months all without any issues.
I do hope there is some possibility of integrating the secure boot feature of Buster into MX. Though it does not affect me much personally, I know it will matter to others.
Anyhow--Congrats to the awesome Debian devs and community!

+1.... Running Buster since January and in another partition same package install but with antiX 19 beta repos, with no issues. Performance feels better than Stretch. Waiting for the final MX and antiX buster repos, then decide either to use systemd (MX) or sysVinit (antiX).

Do you think MX 19 will use systemd?

It looks like MX 19 will use sysvinit.

I know antiX won't... and I can run everything I want on antiX. :happy: :number1: I, also, know that Artix, Devuan, Gentoo, slackware, PCLinuxOS, Fat DOG , Void and a few others don't so....
