MX Linux is a desktop-oriented GNU/Linux distribution based on Debian’s stable branch releases. MX Linux uses the XFCE by default and aims for “an elegant and efficient desktop with simple configuration, high stability, solid performance and medium-sized footprint.”

There are several releases of MX Linux supported concurrently. These typically follow Debian’s periods of active development and extended long-term support, which provides security patches to a limited set of packages. Often this equates to ~2 years of active support and 2 years of long-term security patch support.

MX Linux matches the year of release (21 was released in 2021 for eg) for versioning.

MX offers releases supporting x86 32-bit PAE (i686-compatible) processors, x86 64-bit processors, and the Raspberry Pi’s 32-bit armhf architecture.

More information is available on the MX Linux website.
