Wow! I have been so busy that I did not realize MX Linux had its version 21 (Wildflower) Beta 1 released a few days ago. I am downloading it right now to give it a test drive. Will it run on my moody Dell laptop? I really hope so!
UPDATE 1: The 32 bit live did not run on my Dell Inspiron 15 3000! I will try with the 64 bit ISO...
UPDATE 2: Total success! Everything works out of the box! Even VLC, that gave me headaches on Ubuntu works smoothly. I tested the beta on a Dell Inspiron 14 3000 as well and both performed equally.
What's next? Installing and testing, at least on my 15 3000.
Thank you, MX team! You always surprise me!
