Google hits on MX 14

#1 Post by richb » Mon Feb 03, 2014 7:37 am

Out of curiosity did a google search on MX 14. The first hit was on the bottom of the first page. Doing a search on "MX 14 Linux" populated the first page of hits. And some not our community pages.
Here is one that has some interesting comments on the panel placement, mostly positive.

Thanks, that's very encouraging. It amazes me that people are talking about it at this stage. I particularly liked the last comment based on B2 (and not just b/c of the comment about the Help document...):
Nice little distro shaping up here, folks. They got the second beta up this week. I still haven't done an installation (virtual or hard drive), but it looks great from the live session. They're going with QupZilla as the default web browser instead of Midori, which shipped with the first beta. Lots of nice little touches, like smxi and inxi, a metapackage installer, and a good "Help" document (accessible from the panel). Definitely worth a look for folks who like Xfce and anything based on Debian Stable.

Makes me wonder:

1) Should we have a testimonial page or something like that on the website?

2) Would there be a problem using this quote on such a page?

1. I think that is a good idea.
2. I do not think so. Warren's Mepis page has testimonials. But I do not know if he asked permission of the person to quote them. Maybe you should ask him.

After thinking of this over breakfast, I propose a 2-prong approach:
  • A website page "Reviews," that would contain published reviews, both informal and formal, with a link and a quote
  • A subforum here for testimonials
That seems somehow better to me.

Works for me. Want me to add the subforum

It is best to ask for permission rather than assume they gave permission. Now if it is from a post on a forum, permission is automatically assumed since the post is semi-public.

Exactly: it is a post on a forum--hence, "published."

My bad! I JUST realized it was from a forum, and not from a blog. Two different animals - legally. (I've been reading too many court cases concerning computer usage copyrights.) A forum answer is a "public" response, whereas a blog is a "private" record.

The reviews tab will also be nice for those you-tube linux reviews that are bound to happen. Lord knows they like new things...
