MX Linux-17 Beta 1, released last week, is a desktop-oriented Linux distribution based on Debian’s “stable” branch. It is a cooperative venture between the antiX and former MEPIS Linux communities — hence its breakaway name. Normally, taking a first look at an early phase beta release means taking a few hours to get familiar with the features and performance. If too many glitches appear, it can doom the early release to a negative review. However, I was familiar with earlier versions of MX Linux, and I felt it could stand up to a review.
