MX Linux 18 and Manjaro Gnome 18.0


MX Linux 18

MX Linux calls itself a "midweight OS designed to combine an elegant and efficient desktop with simple configuration, high stability, solid performance, and medium-sized footprint." MX, which is a collaboration between the antiX and MEPIS communities, has gained attention throughout the Linux world and is now at the top of the DistroWatch list with over 4,000 hits per day. Inside you'll find a customized Xfce desktop and the innovative MX Tools – a collection of utilities for configuring and troubleshooting the boot process, sound system, video drivers, and more. MX is based on Debian and includes both SysVinit and systemd – with SysVinit as the default.

Manjaro Gnome 18.0

Manjaro is a desktop OS based on the iconic Arch Linux. Manjaro comes with classic Arch tools, such as the pacman package management system, but prides itself on a simple and user-friendly desktop environment.
