MX Linux @MX_Linux Oct 11 The entire art package is being reworked for MX-16, and the results so far are really exciting. Stay tuned...
Did not expect that.
It is interesting that people judge a distro by appearance as this information suggests. I would not have guessed that either. I hope we get it right for MX-16.

I want to see a number of followers over 100-200, then things will snowball a bit and we can increase the engagement, retweets, discussions, etc. Twitter is a great place for short announcements and for increasing the visibility of MX Linux for other people who'd not necessarily hear about it otherwise. I think we are doing great considering that Jerry and I were not "social media" users and we are new to Twitter.

Ditto that, and I'm hopeful that this whole set of changes for MX-16 will bring that.

Nice pickup in the last 24h: 10% increase in number of followers (OK, so it's only 49 total), who are being followed themselves by a total of about 1,400 others.

Thanks to Adrian and the Packagers for their ongoing support of this new venture.

That would be me :) Hi!
As a follow up that may or may not help: I had to move to mint, against my will. There were lots of papercuts, too long to list, on two different laptops I tried it on. I wish you best of luck with the new release.

Sorry to hear that. If you have a list, it would be helpful if you could send me that with a PM.
