ran mx17 for a week

#1 Post by frenzy67 » Sun Feb 25, 2018 2:29 pm

so after trying numerous distros over the years (first was redhat 9 i got free with a magazine) and not really getting on with any , although i did keep ubuntu the longest i decided to try mx.
firstly i needed a distro that could do my business docs etc so needed to network with windows 7 for file/printer share.
tried doing it with ubuntu 17 but after 2 weeks i gave up. BUT mx17 was networked up and running in 20 mins, even networked with my lubuntu laptop.
libra office updated sweetly, no problems.
everything i need so far runs sweet as *****
hugh thumbs up to the team
