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.

I couldn't get the wireless to work and most of the utilities I try to launch never do.
Remember those old distros where there were a bazillion items on a menu that extends off the screen? And most of those menu items seemed the same but just slightly different? Remember how confusing that is? Like that? You'll probably love MX.

The MX-series has been well-received and worked flawlessly previously. Your article indicates a continuing effort at producing a high-quality offering. Will check it out, and expect good things to happen. Many thanks.

What best describes your attitude toward social networks and politics?
The value of engaging in serious political discourse outweighs the negatives.
Most of the political conversations seem overheated and ignorant.
Social networks provide a lot of very good political information from reliable sources.
Almost every political post I see is skewed or totally fake.
Political interactions on social networks simply mirror those in the real world.
Social networks remove inhibitions, bringing out the worst in people and politics.
