    I've written a detailed review of Xubuntu 19.10 Eoan Ermine, tested in a multi-boot Windows and Linux setup on a laptop with UEFI, 16 partitions and Intel graphics, covering live session, installation and post-install usage, including look & feel, networking - Wireless, Bluetooth, Samba sharing, printing, multimedia - HD video and MP3 playback, smartphone support - Android, iPhone and Windows Phone, partitioning, package management and updates, applications and extras, difficult customization and associated problems, hardware compatibility, stability, suspend & resume, performance, responsiveness, resource usage, battery life, other observations, and more. Take a look.

    Thanks for the review, and saving my time trying it! :)

    Maybe that’s related to the fact that MX Linux is based on Debian rather than Ubuntu?
    Just a guess.

    Best,

    +1. It also helps that you know what you are writing about. I used to try distros but now I just read your reviews to see which one you're using. Must admit I'm really pleased with Kubuntu so the bar is set high.

    I've had a few issues with Xubuntu 19.10 , XFCE screensaver crashing (so I can't unlock sessions), its possible to get the new display layout tool confused, both these bugs have been reported. I don't normally try non-LTS distros, but was keen to try out XFCE 4.14 and I think 20.04 LTS could be a good XFCE distro.
