It makes it easy to find this thread by searching for "reveiw", though!

I'm with Gordon. The spelling bugs the heck out of me.
It would be so easy to correct it.

After upgrading from version 17.1 to 18 I can definitely say MX is my favorite distro so far.

Pros: fast, stable, simple, solid and reliable. Boots on a 2007 Black Macbook 2,1 without need of rEFInd / OSX partition.

Cons: multimonitor support is not the best, automatic audio switching is not implemented, Mac foreign (ITA) keyboard not working correctly (3 things that were working for me in Mint 18.3)

Globally 9 out of 10.

After installing and running `apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade` system is going to be in a broken state.
Well, I don't know how anyone manages to use MX when it breaks with the first updates! 9_9

That's strange, it's also demonstrable false.

Next, I expect these clowns to report that MX contains viruses, spyware, and Bitcoin miners. Maybe they just haven't thought of that yet.
