MX Linux 18 Continuum: MX Linux is a Linux distribution we prefer on iGuRu.gr. It is based on the Debian stable and has come from a partnership between the antiX and MEPIS Linux communities that has stopped developing.
It uses Xfce as the default desktop, and is an operating system that combines an elegant and efficient desktop with simple settings, high stability, stable performance and minimal footprint.
In short, it's a fairly light distribution that does not sacrifice quality.
The MX Linux team today announced the release of the fixed version 18. The new version is based on Debian 9.6 "Stretch" and includes all the basic system updates and new versions of desktop applications.
"We are pleased to offer the MX-18 Continuum. The MX-18 offers the following features:
Updated packages with the latest updates from the Debian 9.6 Stretch, antiX and MX repositories: GIMP 2.10 (with plugins). New Linux 4.19.5 kernel (with patch blk-mq). New firmware. New Meltdown and Specter mitigation, even in the 32 bit kernel.
Very easy to change cores with the MX Package Installer (you can very easily change to the 'liquorix' kernel or downgrade to the Debian 'stable' kernel 4.9).
Some Xfce items have been updated (such as Xfce Settings, and Thunar). New and up-to-date mx-apps: selectable topics for the GRUB and Plymouth boot-splash boot menu installed through the mx-boot options.
System-keyboard and locale options for easy access to the default keyboard and for better location management.
Updates to the MX Package Installer, for better performance…. ”
