    THat is so. antiX is run by anticapitalista and they collaborated with members of the former Mepis Community to provide the MX-series. I have been using MX since v14, and like Karl Malden (who?) wouldn't leave home without it. Be aware that it is more closely linked to Debian than Ubuntu and...

    Join two hard drives in "/" directory

    Thanks for that info, @kashyr :) I have a lot of head nodding in the points raised by the 3 Members above, at #es 14, 13, and 12. I have your 'Beaver GNOME' in my stable (run 90 Linux), and I have been working on some figures. Can you find your way to Terminal (Ctrl-Alt-t) and provide me with...
