FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

Good Morning to all and thank you for the kind comments. It was a team effort and required persistence from everyone involved.

I sure learned a lot in a hurry. I started out as a novice and ended up being a professional novice. As my Dad would say, I know just enough to be dangerous. ;)

The developers have done an amazing job with this distro. I'm not a distro hopper and plan to make MX Linux my computing home.

Merry Christmas/Holidays to everyone. Best for 2019. Keep up the good work! Ron

Congrats Ron for insisting.

You joined about the same time the forum as I did. I was using MX quite sometime mainly on older machines. Now I have it also on a recent EFI laptop and it's really nice.

Merry Christmas and all the best for 2019! Enjoy your install.
Machine: Dell Studio XPS 8100
CPU: Quad core Intel Core i7 860 with 8GB RAM
MX-18 with Kernel 4.19.0-1 (updated from MX-17)
Several other distros and 3 Raid 1 drives configured
