MX Linux and SystemRescueCD

MX Linux

The MX Linux website describes this elegant distro as "a cooperative venture between the antiX and former MEPIS communities, using the best tools and talents from each distro." MX Linux is based on Debian and comes with the Xfce4 desktop. The latest edition includes updated firmware and Meltdown/Spectre mitigation.




This system on a disc is designed for resurrecting downed Linux and Windows computers. Onboard you'll find a gallery of diagnostic and troubleshooting tools, along with filesystem utilities and other rescue aids.
