An advanced kernel updater for a LiveUSB
We have in salix two scripts for updating kernel + initrd in a live usb and then boot with the new kernel.
One script is for huge kernel and the other for generic kernel.

MX Linux, IMHO is just antiX customize.

It's more like "Mepis Lite" to me. The name MX is taken from Mepis and antiX, as both distros share developers.

I do not say it's a bad Linux distro (even because I help MX and also antiX in their translations) but I find it MX Linux a bit confusing.... too many tweaks.

Tired of those distros, have only found peace in Slackware.(and Salix) because i'm becomming a lazy Slacker and i really like the project.

Last line is a good way to put it. Tried MX in VirtualBox and just didn't see the point really. Salix has been the main distro in the house for some time and haven't had any reason to change. Any issues (few) have been fixed by the help of the forum and a tweak here and there.

I chose two "newbie friendly" distros to introduce new people to Linux, often those who had older computers that needed something to replace the resource-hungry Microsoft OS they were used to.

But I don't do a lot of that any more, and it's likely that Salix will become my only distro, on all 3 of my machines (desktop, laptop, and spare 32-bit desktop).
