First Upgrade with zero problems

#1

Post by stevedude » Wed Jan 02, 2019 11:41 am

Just wanted to give the MX Developers some love because this is the first upgrade I had on a Linux distribution that had zero problems. I started using Linux with Ubuntu because it seemed popular at the time and had good support, but no matter if it was their 6-month upgrade or an LTS upgrade, I always had some sort of issue. Nothing ever went smoothly. I tried Deepin (Debian base) then Deepin (Manajaro base) and had issues with those. My prior system was Manjaro Gnome and again issues would occur.

I started with MX Linux 17 and the upgrade to 18 (my first with this distribution) was flawless for me. Thanks for all the planning and testing to make the roll out smooth.

There is a minimum number of posts in a topic before it is listed as active. I am searching to determine what that number is.

EDIT: Found the problem. Active topics were not enabled for that sub-forum. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

No problem, glad it was an easy fix.
