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.

How do you feel about Black Friday/Cyber Monday this year?
I'm excited to find great deals and plan to do some serious shopping on BFCM.
I'll watch for BFCM sales, but I intend to drastically curb my spending this year.
BFCM has become a season -- I no longer feel driven to look for bargains on those specific days.
I plan to have most of my holiday shopping done *before* BFCM.
I detest the holiday sales hype and will avoid shopping on BFCM.
