MX Linux, a Linux distribution based on the Debian stable, and as you may know, is one of the distributions we recommend for everyone, experienced or beginner. The distribution came from a collaboration between its communities antiX and MEPIS Linux that has ceased to grow.
It uses Xfce as the default desktop, and is an operating system that combines an elegant and efficient desktop with simple settings, high stability, stable performance and minimal footprint.
In short, it's a fairly light distribution that does not sacrifice quality.
Distribution offers a feature that allows you to create an ISO snapshot.
What is this;
Add your operating system along with all of its settings to an ISO image that can be transferred to a DVD or USB drive to reinstall this system!
Yes, another kind of backup.
For those who did not try the distribution, there is a custom ISO below, from the system I use.
It contains several pre-installed applications but also different DEs (KDE, Xfce) so you don't have to worry about formatting a new installation.
In additional applications to mention the latest Google Chrome, Opera, Filezilla, Firefox (64), Pinta, Geany, Slack desktop, qBittorrent, Nvidia drivers, MX codecs and more so that distribution works well with many additional applications right after installation.
Other key features:
The system is fully updated with the latest packages in the distribution repositories, and ISO can also be used as Live ISO.
Let me mention that the official ISO is in 1GB, while the custom I uploaded to Google Drive is 3.7 GB (3,680,501,760 bytes).
ISO and md5 for file verification come as a .zip package.
Live ISO screen:
It contains extra files, without many personal settings and my accounts removed for obvious reasons. So after installation with a few clicks you will be able to have a ready system with almost everything you need pre-installed.
Download MX Linux:

To install, boot from ISO, open a terminal and give su.
It will ask you for the root password. Type secnews and press Enter.
Then enter the minstall command, press Enter and the installation will begin.
To avoid many post-installation settings, where the installer reports re-use home, select this setting.
After installation you can add users from the KDE or Xfce graphical interface.
