Table Notes and Explanations
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

MX Linux 16 is a clean, fast, and functional Operating System. It provides a good amount of typical Linux software that any user would want. The Live Persistence tools and in house made MX tools provide a lot of additional functionality and ease of use. The MX development team and forum are excellent and a pleasure to interact with.

Without a doubt in my opinion, MX Linux is by far the best 'static-release' type of GNU/Linux distribution. It is very fast, very stable, and VERY configurable.

Its forum is one of the best around.

My only complaint is that there appears to be no way currently to encrypt the /home folder.

I really like the fact that the OS comes complete with an actual operating manual which can even be printed on paper!

I'd give this OS 9.5 stars if i could.
