MX Linux

We just uploaded the MX-16 January snapshots
http://mxrepo.com/snapshots/?C=M;O=D

For people who are not accustomed with our monthly snapshots, these are not new versions or point releases, but updated and corrected versions of the original release created to allow the user to avoid the need to download and install hundreds of packages immediately after a new installation.

Basically if you have MX-16 installed you don't need to download these ISOs, you get the same fixes through the regular update process.

This snapshot includes:
- latest Debian 8.7 update
- 118 packages were updated, 224 MB downloaded, about 5 MB freed after installing the updates (the ISOs uses a higher compression rate that's why is a bit smaller)
- Bluetooth fix
- Theme fix
- Mirrors added for Germany and France
- Various MX apps fixes
- Xscreensaver update that fixes a bug
- Updated documentation
- Firefox and Thunderbird updates
- Whisker-menu update
- Pepper-flash update

These are the latest monthly snapshot .iso files of MX. They consist of the base release with all the routine & security upgrades since release applied but with nothing else added. They are the preferred way of installing MX because some issues in the original release have been fixed already, and ...

Listed only recently on Distrowatch and we are doing pretty well:
6 months: 76
3 months: 35
4 weeks: 14
1 week: 9

It's to see that the MX-16 release pushed us to top 10 for the 1 week period.

Nice! I didn't know that! Thanks so much!
(In case you took offense, I would rate you above Ubuntu anyday, I just like the size of their repos)

Up and running. Looking nice, which is no surprise as both the beta and the RC have been rock-solid! Had no problem installing over UEFI or secure boot either on my new machine...

November snapshot will come out tomorrow, unfortunately the snapshots from October had a GRUB problem when installing.

These will probably be the latest MX-15 snapshots, we'll concentrate on MX-16 beta testing and release after this ones.

Great in-depth review here, and I agree with all the parts that I've replicated. I've not gone to this depth, but the installer has recognised all of my hardware without any issues - across 2 laptops and a desktop. The installer is a gem - simple and explanatory, and after over 10 years with Linux, the only one that's given me confidence to mess with my partitions before install. I now have /Home and my file system separated on their own partitions, which after lots of worrying about it turned out to be a non-event with GParted. I've been running MX-16 since the first beta, and it's been absolutely faultless, and as fast a distro as I've some across, which is why it now powers my business and all my other machines. I've also tried adding the Cinnamon desktop, which is nearly as fast as Xfce. This is a distro which deserves more attention. I'd strongly recommend anyone reading this gives it a go!

Uploaded November snapshots (last before the MX-16 release). These snapshots are only MX-15 base updated with the latest packages from the regular repos (not an official release), I also installed the new live-kernel-updater and live-usb-maker tools.

Thus, the users will no longer be to install the MX Linux with the intention to install antiX.

Midweight Xfce distro based on Debian Stable
Introduction

MX-15 is the current release of MX Linux, a special version of antiX developed in full collaboration with the MX Community, using the best tools and talents from each distro. It is a midweight OS designed to combine an elegant and efficient desktop with simple configuration, high stability, solid performance and medium-sized footprint.

Relying on the excellent upstream work by Linux, MX-15 deploys Xfce4 as Desktop Environment on top of a Debian Stable base; ongoing backports to the Community Repos keep it current. It also incorporates the independent and innovative development products Whisker Menusmxi and inxi.
