Actually version 19.4, but that wasn't an option from the pull-down. My usual procedure with a new distro or distro version is to install it not in a VB or VM but to an external USB HDD. Then I can see how the boot loader works, see how portable it is to other machines, and just give it a nice go-round. Something I discovered with this latest version of Extix (it may have been present before, just never tried it as I didn't much care for the earlier look) was that when I installed 19.04 from a USB HDD that had had all sorts of modifications made, those modifications went along to the new install. That I liked a lot. I also found this new version to be far better than earlier versions in usability although the installer is not for the newbie; it's powerful but has a lot of options the uninitiated will not understand. Nice job.

The beta of betas, right out there on the edge - playing with first to kernel 5.0, Disco Dingo pre-release, etc, etc.
And it shows. I rate this distro as "interesting", just like the saying "may you live in interesting times."
It took a while to install in a VM, had to start it in "recovery" on 1st boot, then > 1 hour of updates.
The install is wall-to-wall carpeting on a 12GB VM. Not a daily driver, but a curiousity. A look at the parent umbrella, Exton, which warns you of all 16 crazy distros to avoid this week.

Any new souped OS without UEFI support, is absolutely Stupid and Ludicrous.
Don't waste your time downloading it, get Ubuntu, or Fedora.
They work!
