MX Linux 19.2 KDE Edition Officially Released, Available for Download Now

I’ve been keeping my eyes on this first KDE Plasma edition of the MX Linux distribution, which appears to have quite some fans. Usually, MX Linux was only released with the Xfce desktop environment as it aims to be a fast and lightweight Debian-based distribution for 32-bit and 64-bit computers, which doesn’t ship with the systemd init system. So, in order to offer users a more modern MX Linux release, the KDE Plasma edition has been based entirely on the recently introduced Advanced Hardware Support (AHS) ISO, which is only available for 64-bit systems and allows the use of newer kernel and graphics stacks on top of a stable Debian base.
