3 months ago when I have started learning about debian and respbian
I have used Zorin 9 since 2014 up until February this year and then decided to try something else.I now use MX Linux and i dont think i will change to any distro unless an amazing one appears.
There is a MX tools utility which you can open from the MX Tools menu.Isn't there a way to backup your home folder and restore it in your fresh MX18 installation?

At the top you will find MX Snapshot, which you can use to create a bootable memory stick or DVD. I have not used this feature myself, so do a bit up reading up before you use this. I tried to find MX Snapshot in the users manual that comes with MX 18.3 but no luck yet.
Wait until the Wizard from OZ replies, he knows more than me about this stuff. I only have an introductory knowledge on Linux.
Yes, it reminds of the system restore thing in Windows. I will try to find out if there is something about this in the MX users manual over the weekend. I would like to use it myself.Ive used this feature before it's like remastersys/pinguy builder. I have used it to clone a live iso of my installed system. I have not tried using it to transfer files to a fresh install i.e. MX 17 to 18

I see there are updates for the Linux kernel and Firefox in my little update box, but like I mentioned earlier there is some issue with the latest update for MX Linux they need to resolve first. I will hold off for now.
I would like to know what Poorguy and the Wizard say about this matter, I am only the Tin Man.
These blokes are in another league and also in another time zone than I, one in the USA and the other down under. I am in the middle somewhere.
Yes, I am in South Africa myself so we are just hours apart.Always a wise idea to hold back until all issues are ironed out.
I have completely ditched firefox for waterfox. I prefer waterfox to be honest. less bloat and calling home in my opinion. its been quite consistant for me. Not sure if its based on firefox esr. There must be a way of updating only one piece of software via the terminal. I tend to google search for solutionsYes, I am in South Africa myself so we are just hours apart.
I have run into a bit of a predicament. In my MX Linux I have two updates available. One is for Firefox and the other one is for the Linux kernel 4.19.
Now I know I should hold back on the kernel update for now, but I have just read something about a zero-day vulnerability in Firefox that needs to be patched. I have used Ubuntu Linux for years and you can choose to uncheck updates you don't want to install in Ubuntu update, but I don't know how to do that in MX Linux.
I sometimes update my whole system with sudo apt update and sudo apt upgrade in the terminal, but now I don't know how to update only Firefox.
Linux is really above my head but I would have yo buy a new PC to use Windows 10.
I don't do windows anymore, since 2014.
Any ideas Brolly?
I didn't know you could use Waterfox in Linux. How did you do that?I have completely ditched firefox for waterfox.

Hooray for trial and error.It doesn't cost anthing to re-install;no toll-free hour long phone call required!Thanks @wizardfromoz I feel a massive weight off my shoulders since i finally decided to ditch Window$ again. Speaking of Distrowatch its pretty interesting how trends change. Ubuntu was king for sometime until Linux Mint took the crown for a significant period of time. Manjaro did a good job as well. I agree that MX Linux is good for starters. Ive learnt a lot about linux and I understand quite a lot of jargon and scripts. My skills with Window$ were moderate to advanced. I'd say i am on the lower end of moderate with Linux thanks to a lot of research + trial and error. I am keen to be on the advanced side of the spectrum with Linux. I will post in the member introduction section as you mentioned.
