MX-Fluxbox (MXFB) has two purposes: to provide an attractive option for users and to extend the range of MX down to hardware that lacks sufficient resources.

==> mxlinux.org/blog/4585/

You can also get rid of these MXFB packages if they bother you:

sudo apt remove mxfb-docs mxfb-art mx-idesktool mx-dockmaker

1) Don't want to be bothered by MX-Fluxbox?

sudo apt purge mx-fluxbox fluxbox

2) MXFB is also used by people who like a simple, fast desktop over which the user has near-total control (we have somebody who runs it on a Lenovo X1 Carbon).

The core package mx-fluxbox is being upgraded.

Here's what is different and how the user should handle it:
