As with any new operation, it makes sense to read the instructions first.

MC, I looked at the MX Linux user manual from the link you have posted above. Not only is it comprehensive and clear but also contain so much information and links for further reference and tutorials, that I bookmarked it for me, as a reference manual. Apparently, they had in mind, those with limited knowledge like me when they wrote it, because I had no trouble at all in following the instructions or understanding the explanations. If I saw this at the time I installed Q4OS, I wouldn't have had to ask so many questions in the forums!

The other thing is, reading the manual aroused in me a strong temptation to go for it. However, I resisted that and decided to continue with Q4OS

Regards

A (very) different review now from Igor.

Q4OS as fast as MX-16 OFFICIAL!

I actually read this review by Rodger Bodger
I was happy it did not suffer the same boot issues, however I did end up burning a CD because the USB would not boot.

So far everything looks good and I like that it has the KDE desktop. I need to get some time to give a proper test drive. My hope is that it brings back back some common sense which has been lacking with so many new distros.

Depends on your hardware specs and if you even want it or not but these are the install instructions for Compiz/Emerald.

Copying my recent screencasts here from the poll thread as they're pretty much lost to view there.

I followed these instructions and they worked perfectly for Q4 OS.

I have not attempted same for MX-16 although there are details about how to do so in the MX forum.
