I've just recently installed MX Linux. I've been using Manjaro for the past year, but I needed a more stable distro.
XMind mindmapping software (which is free) doesn't run very well on MX Linux for me. It works, but XMind can't access my Desktop folder. Apparently they've stopped packaging the latest versions in .deb. There is a dodgy workaround and there is a version of XMind in the MX package installer flatpaks repository, but the results are very unpredictable.
But guess what? XMind works like a dream using Wine and the 64bit Windows version! But darn it, I wanted to get away from Windows, but I have so many important notes on XMind, it's a case of needs must, etc.
I am impressed with MX Linux xfce. Since I was using Manjaro xfce anyway, there is not much difference at all. I'll just have to get used to the apt-gets and the debs, etc. But I have used Ubuntu in the past.
Ubuntu is coming under a lot of criticism these days, some of it is possibly justified, but I'm so grateful for the early days when I first tried Linux all those years ago, dual booting Windows with Ubuntu. Even then, Ubuntu had a certain quality about it and it was a great springboard for other distros.
