This is important for users who want to boot by default into systemd instead of sysVinit, good work by Adrian / MX Linux here.

Adrian: Fixed mx-boot-options, not it sets the default menu even if you use GRUB submenus.

We have the new release of the popular video ripper and transcoder, Handbrake 1.2.0, in our test repository, and it enables hardware accelerated encoding, at least for recent Intel GPUs!

We're starting a complete review of the Users Manual to bring it up to MX-18.

The Forum will go offline tonight Jan 05 at about 7:00 PM EST for a software upgrade. We anticipate a couple of hours to complete it. This is necessary as the current version is no longer supported and the upgrade includes bug fixes.

We've rolled in an update to the proprietary 390.87 Nvidia drivers that allow for the Nvidia Vulkan drivers to stay installed, and make the upgrade from an older driver version a much better experience.

Interesting look at the simple syncing functions of MX-User Manager, an often overlooked tool, but one of the best user management tools out there.

Very impressed by the lastest release of #MXLinux18 by @mxlinux the team successfully build a distro that is simple to manage, that doesn't hide the complexity, but reduces dramatically the effort required to sustain the OS and get effective quickly. There is even a tool to access my iphone's photos! Amazing... I even wonder if I'm not gonna switch for good.

@normandc FYI: MX Linux 17.x/18 has the 0.17 release of #FreeCAD as a Flatpak app. Installation is a breeze from their package install GUI. Runs fine. Another round of thanks and Kudos from me for the MX Linux devs! @mxlinux
