Word for MX Linux

#1

Post by Mauser » Sat Jan 12, 2019 7:08 pm

For those of us in the MX Linux community we just about all know that Arch has a word for their distro, KISS = Keep It Simple Stupid. How about suggestions on what word would fit best for MX Linux. The MX Linux developers can pick the best one in their opinion. I will go first. RES = Reliable Easy Simple

Well, it's easy to remember. And an addition from me

MX - It just works even better
