Project Description

MX Linux is a cooperative venture between the antiX and former MEPIS communities, using the best tools and talents from each distro. It is a midweight OS designed to combine an elegant and efficient desktop with simple configuration, high stability, solid performance and medium-sized footprint.

MX Linux relies on the excellent upstream work by Linux and the open-source community, deploying Xfce4 as Desktop Environment on top of a Debian Stable base. We draw from the core antiX system and and include work and ideas used by Warren Woodford for his MEPIS project. Ongoing backports and outside additions to our repos serve to keep components current with developments.

The files that end in .iso are big and are the main installation media, and are what most people will want to download.

The .zsync files allow you to download the .iso files via zsync, which if you don't know what that is don't worry about it.  Download the iso.

The .delta files are binary patches. They are smaller than the .iso files. If you have already downloaded the rc1 iso file then you can use the .delta patch to convert it to the final iso file using the xdelta3 program.  If you don't know what that is don't worry about it.  Download the iso.

The .md5 and .sha256 files are "checksums" that let you verify every bit in the .iso file is correct. 

The .sig files are digital signatures that prove the .iso files came from us and not an imposter.
