MX Linux is a free distribution, which was created with the aim of combining elements of different operating systems (OS) under the aegis of one project. As a basis, the developers took the Debian platform and the Xfce graphical shell, which is well known to many Linux, Solaris and FreeBSD users. In addition, the OS supports UEFI installation and also allows you to boot the system in LiveCD/USB mode, which may be convenient for those who want to have a general idea of the system before installing it on your hard drive.
Bundled with MX Linux you can find a large set of free embedded applications that can compete with commercial software. Among them are a convenient IDE for Geany developers, a powerful graphical editor GIMP, a simple music player Clementine, a multifunctional package of office applications LibreOffice and a utility for flexible configuration of MX Tools system parameters. The latter offers fast installation of all necessary media codecs and drivers for comfortable work. The OS also includes a classic terminal (Xfce4) and a fast file manager Thunar, which allows you to expand its standard features through the installation of various plugins. Additional applications are downloaded using the MX Package Installer.
The appearance of the OS reminds us of all other distributions that use the Xfce environment. The main taskbar is located on the left side of the screen. In the bottom corner there is an analogue of the "Start" button with the MX Linux logo. If desired, you can change the desktop wallpaper, change the resolution, icons and options.
