MX Linux is an excellent distro.
It continues to impress me.
I have been using it in my stable since MX-14 was changing to MX-15, and it is probably in my Top 10 at all times.
Being so closely related to Debian, more so than say Ubuntu and Linux Mint, it does not support the use of PPAs (Personal Package Archives), a concept developed by Ubuntu. But I do not see that as a drawback as it has alternatives to adding Repositories and Software Sources.
Doesn't hurt, too, that it has gob-smackingly gorgeous wallpapers
It only offers the one DE (Desktop Environment) and that is Xfce, but they focus on just the one environment, and they do it well. And Xfce's resource consumption (low) is just the ticket, for many users.
