Finally I found a distribution that takes XFCE seriously and offers a user-friendly yet challenging desktop for beginners. I'm at home.

Kudos to everyone involved with MX Linux. :happy: MX 18 is very nicely done.

After reading Dedoimedo's positive reviews of MX 17, I installed ver. 17.1 (64-bit) on this netbook and test-drove it for a month. Everything worked well and I was surprised how "snappy" the OS was -- even on this old hardware (Intel Atom N455 processor, 2 GB RAM). When I saw that ver. 18 had been released, I decided to go ahead and do a fresh install. It has not disappointed so far ...

I like that MX is based on Debian Stable but has newer components in some areas (such as the kernel, LibreOffice, etc.). I am impressed that even in a Live USB session, the sometimes problematic Broadcom WiFi chips in my devices [the HP Mini's Broadcom BCM4313 and the old Dell Latitude E4300's Broadcom BCM4322] were detected and properly set up to work OOTB.

I will likely be installing MX 18 on my production desktop PC soon. Thanks again for a great distro!
