Since, I personally use a Respin (unofficial) from MX-Linux and I value very much the quality of said MX-Linux DistroI am always on the lookout for your news. And recently, the March , have given the pleasant news that they have released the stable version of one of their Respins (officials) named "MX-Linux Raspberry Pi" Respin "Ragout2".
In short words, “MX-Linux Raspberry Pi” is a personal Respin with strong support from the MX-Linux development team (MX Dev) that makes possible the ideal management of a Raspberry Pi with MX-Linux. And that also offers two lightweight window managers: Fluxbox and Openbox.
And as usual, before we dive into today's topic of MX-Linux, and more specifically about the release of their new official Respin called "MX-Linux Raspberry Pi" Respin "Ragout2", we will leave for those interested the following links to some previous related posts. In such a way that they can easily explore them, if necessary, after finishing reading this publication:
“AV Linux MX-21 Edition codenamed “Consciousness” has been released based on MX-21 “Wildflower” and Debian 11 (Bullseye). This new version has been completely built from scratch and is the first version that is not a 'Respin' of an existing system and was built with the same tools used to build MX and antiX. Because you have moved to a completely new Debian platform (from Buster to Bullseye) there is no upgrade path from previous versions of AV Linux and you will have to install from the ISO".
