I will soon release a new version of MeX. This time based on upcoming Ubuntu 13.10. MeX is thus for those who are impatient...

I would like to make the following clarifications.
1. My Ubuntu remasters (MeX, ExTiX, LFA and ExLight ) use Ubuntu's official repositories only.
2. Anyone who does not like "my" Ubuntu kernels (for example 3.11.0 -7- exton in MeX ) can naturally (after a hard disk installation) install Ubuntu's Official kernel. For example 3.11.0 -12 -generic in MeX 13.10. I also must say the my Ubuntu kernels are compiled in exactly the same way as Ubuntu's Official kernels. (If they were not, they would not work in a Ubuntu/Debian system).
3. In MeX, ExTiX and ExLight you'll have to to create your own users after a hard drive installation. It is done with the command sudo adduser MyUser. If you want to delete the live account, it is done with the command sudo deluser live. Not so difficult. LFA, however, behaves exactly like Ubuntu original in the just mentioned respect. That's because there is no root account in LFA. (As in all original Ubuntu systems ).
I would also like to make clear the following: If an original Linux system can run on a particular computer without problems, my remaster of the original Linux system MUST run on the same computer. I never alter a Linux system for the worse in terms of auto configuration and hardware detection. It happens that I replace the kernel, but then always to a "better" kernel with even more "native" support for different types of hardware, etc. (As I thus have done in version 131019 of MeX 13.10).

I've made an English version of my old instruction "How to burn an ISO file and something about checking it with md5sum".
The instruction can be useful to Linux newbies. (I think so anyway.)
Golf can best be defined as an endless series of tragedies obscured by the occasional miracle
