Congratulations, you’ve decided for one of the betterer distros, a Linux for people who know their shit. It’s probably unneccesary to tell you that the new updated version 18.2 was released two days ago. Yes, of course it’s moot to tell you since you should’ve been updated automatically.
Note: existing users do not need to reinstall. All bug fixes and additions will come through the regular update channel.
As always a little explainer/disclaimer: Despite nearly all modern Linuxes, at least the top 20 or so, are super easy to install and to operate these days, there are still enough differences to make some more user/beginner-friendly than others. And MX, as a Debian derivative, is super cool n all but not really aimed at the n00bs among us. In fact if you are new to the Linuxy game, I recommend the same as I do since long: Linux Mint. It’s the way to go.
