Been running various distros for several years now. Initially started out with Ubuntu back before Unity. Then found Kubuntu with KDE4 and settled on that for many years, After the release of KDE5 started distro hopping again. I like how OpenSUSE looks on my main computer, but have video issues. Finally settled on MXlinux 18.3, and I like how it offers a little of everything.

JUlinux 18 was released on May 18, 2019. Like JULinux 17, JULinux 18 is based on Ubuntu MATE 18.04. Waterfox which is based on Firefox 56 replaces SeaMonkey, Firefox, and Chromium as the installed browser in the 64 bit version. Firefox is the installed browser in the 32 bit version. The iso of JULinux 18 has been slimmed down to just 1.2 GB. New boot plymouths with the message "MAKE YOUR COMPUTER GREAT AGAIN" have been added. Steam gaming platform has been added to the full install. LibreOffice is now an option on the full install.

I recommend JULinux 18 to be installed on laptop and desktop computers that do not have JULinux 17 or C4C Lubuntu ReSpin. Those who have JULinux 17 should stay with that version at least until a JULinux based on a future Ubuntu 20.04 is released in 2020. Those who are using the 64 bit version and want to install Waterfox can add the following PPA.

Those who want to add Steam to JULinux 17 or any Ubuntu 18.04 install should add the following PPA.

The above repo will also work on JULinux 12 and 16 and Ubuntu 16.04.

I am in search of a bible program for LInux. I love e-sword and have used it for years, but It appears the only way I could use that is via Wine ( program in Linux ). I was wondering what others use. I have been using blueletter bible online, but I do want to have a backup linux solution as I have one for my phone / Windows 7 / now just need LInux.

Hi, I have been testing out various LInux that run from Ram, so far, I really like Puppy Linux, and Slax Linux as they are light weight, and can breath life into all of those machine people are tossing because Windows 7 will loose support. I really like Puppy, but has been a bear to get it to do what I want. Thanks for starting this group, love Jesus, and love open source software.
