@optimuspnj Its just as much for noobs as mint or ubuntu or debian or manjaro. MX is very sleek and has a lot of online resources if you need help.
@optimuspnj no distro is a distro "for noobs". All of them are just polished for some use-case. Some are easier to customize, like Gentoo, Arch etc, and some are easier for regular users to use, like MX Linux, ElementaryOS and others.

FLIF uses the MANIAC compression algorithm to achieve compression rates competitive with some lossy image formats. FLIF uses interlacing which allows for an accurate low-scale preview to be made from the first portion of an image, meaning images can be progressively loaded and don't require thumbnails. FLIF also works well on all image types, including photos and art.

@ademalsasa Hello sir!
I bought a new laptop. An i3 one. 😌 What to do, I'm on a low budget.
It's an Asus Vivobook X540UAR. I have faced a big trouble after installing Linux. It has Realtek 8821CE wireless driver which is not supported by Linux kernel by default.
After spending a lot of time, I found a way to patch the kernel.
I just inform you cz you wish for buying a laptop for me. 😊
OptiPNG recompresses PNG files to decrease their size. This process is lossless, meaning the contents of the images are exactly the same once decompressed. OptiPNG can work on several formats, including #TIFF and #GIF, outputting an optimized PNG version of whatever input is given. OptiPNG can also verify the integrity of an image and recover metadata.

pngnq quantizes PNG images down only a few colors. This can cause noticable color transitions on very plain areas, but greatly decreases the file size of the image. pngnq can quantize images down to only 2 colors, dither the output to add pseudo color, can sample more pixels for a more accurate quantization, and supports transparency.
