Good to see he's waking up a bit from his Ubuntu (and flavors) obsession.

Please move this post to its own thread, since it doesn't fit here and any answer(s) will just get lost.

TIA

The title of this thread "More from Dedo" will never be consulted by users looking for answers to your last question: "how long does a Stable MX Distro last?"

BTW: have you consulted the Users Manual for a "straight-forward answer"? Section 1.4, "Support":
What kind of support is available for MX Linux? The answer to this question depends on the type of support you mean:
• User-based problems. A raft of support mechanisms exists for MX Linux, from documents and videos to forums and search engines. See the Community Support page for details.
• Hardware. Hardware is supported in the kernel, where continuous development goes on. Very new hardware may not yet be supported, and very old hardware, though still supported, may no longer be sufficient for the demands of the desktop and applications.
• Desktop. Xfce4 is a mature desktop that remains under development. The version shipped with MX Linux is considered stable; important updates will be applied as they become available.
• Applications. Applications continue to be developed after the release of any version of MX Linux, meaning that the shipped versions will get older as time passes. This problem is addressed through a combination of sources: Debian (including Debian Backports), individual Developers including MX Devs, and the Community Packaging Team, which accepts users’ upgrade requests as much as possible.
• Security. Security updates from Debian will cover MX Linux users well into the foreseeable future.

If I what I explained about users trying to find an answer to the question of long-term support didn't make sense to you...then I don't care where you put the question.

At the moment, MX Linux does not have an LTS version. As a small group of devs and supporters, we provide support past the time that the base Debian release is supported.

I suppose there is a commercial opportunity for some group to offer paid support like Redhat, Canonical, SuSE, etc. To my knowledge that doesn't exist currently.

IMHO, MX is not really aimed at Corporate Users who desire contracts, insurance, 24/7 on-call service.
LT: MX18.3: Thinkpad T430: DualCore, Intel i5-3320M, Ivy Bridge; 8GB RAM; 4.19.0-5-amd64; 119GB SSD 840PRO, Intel Graphics-Audio-Network
NB: MX18.1, antiX17.4: AsusTek EeePC 1005HA: Intel DualCore Atom N270, 1GB RAM, 4.19.0-1-686, 150GB HDD
