MX Linux is a midweight operating system by Linux. It’s based on Debian stable and it uses core antiX components, but it also has some additional software created by the MX community. While it made plenty of users happy and with their lives improved, MX Linux is now at its 19.1 version and ready to be downloaded.
MX Linux 19.1 has become available for download since yesterday, February 16. And it’s worth giving it a try since the Debian-based distro uses the Xfce desktop environment and it’s pre-loaded with great software: LibreOffice, a video and music player, Firefox, and more.
The MX Dev Team started boosting about their new version of MX Linux, and they are justified to do it:
“We are pleased to offer MX-19.1. for your use. MX-19.1 is a refresh of our MX-19 release, consisting of bugfixes and application updates since our original release of MX-19. If you are already running MX-19, there is no need to reinstall. Packages are all available thru the regular update channel,”
How to Download
If you’re willing to test the MX Linux, or you’re already a user of it and you want to head for the newest version, you can download an ISO by following this link: https://sourceforge.net/projects/mx-linux/files/Final/
The team further says that it’s also producing a third ISO file for those users who have more advanced hardware:
“Due to the increasing presence of users with newer hardware (particularly newer AMD or Intel hardware), with this release, in addition to the standard 32 bit and 64 bit isos with 4.19 LTS kernels, we are producing a third iso that we call ‘Advanced Hardware Support’ or AHS (pronounced Oz) for short. AHS is 64 bit and ships with a debian 5.4 kernel, Mesa 19.2 as well as newer xserver drivers and various recompiled apps that will utilize the newer graphics stack.”
MX Linux 19.1 offers plenty of interesting features, and it’s certainly worth giving it a try.
