The MX Linux team is pleased to announce the first public beta release of MX-16 (codename 'Metamorphosis').
Get it here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/antix- ... ing/MX-16/
It is built on the reliable and stable Debian Jessie (8.6) with extra enhancements from the antiX live system and up to date applications provided by the MX Linux packagers.
Just like previous versions of MX, this release defaults to sysVinit.
Available in 32 and 64 bit.
The 32 bit version ships with 2 stable 3.16 Debian kernels (pae and non-pae), while
the 64 bit comes with the more recent Debian backports 4.7 kernel to cater for newer hardware.
All kernels have been patched against the Dirty COW exploit.
Both iso files weigh in at around 1.2GB in size.
Aesthetic changes include a newer theme, new wallpapers and icons as well as
improvements to look of the installer.
