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.

I have to say only that: After a looooong time of distrohoping, and after all that experience I have gained since 2003 in Linux, my conclusion is... MX Linux.

It is fast, stable,usable with many tools, no bloatware its what Linux is meant to be.

Everyone should try it. I fully support the team. I even consider to donate them (I will do it)!

Fantastic distro! Used as my daily driver for 4 months now and loving it. Hats off to the devs for providing an easy path to install fglrx drivers for my AMD R9 280x.

While not perfect (nothing is), any imperfections are more than comprehensively addressed by responsive and knowledgeable development team members on the MX Linux help forums. MX-Linux also has a very well thought-out and comprehensive Wiki that users can access to routine support. MX-16 is my "daily driver" on two of my systems here at home - one of those systems serves as a multimedia PC. Its fast and thoughtfully designed and is appropriate for relative novices and more advanced users alike. Great job!
