I'm sure a 32 bit ISO will be available when the process is finalized.
This is essentially an alpha.

Probably cause featherpad was removed.
Must be hardwired to use featherpad?
there is a mimetype file in the home folder that specifies featherpad as the default. this is part of the desktop-defaults-xfce-mx17 package.

I forget exactly where, maybe under ~/.local

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

From the live session, can't install packages. Hm. The debian.list file looks good, but apt search doesn't find any packages that aren't already installed (same with searching via Synaptic). Or is this normal?
did you update your sources? if not, this is normal.

Cool, I downloaded Geany, and then I can open a text file via Thunar by choosing Geany.

I can't say. I always sync synaptic before trying anything.
