Having Flatpak support adds a nice graphical app store to the OS. You can find most software you might need in there.
Pro AUR enabled by default
The Arch Users Repository is already enabled. Really helps with finding some proprietary software.
Pro Arch Customization without the hassle
You can choose from 15 different desktop environments. Choose from a list of software to install that lets you pick web browsers, Spotify, what kind of office suite, etc. Not as robust in terms of choosing what you install compared to Arch, but more than enough for newcomers and those just looking to get things done. Nice midweight OS.

Con Too much preinstalled applications
Con Too much customization
Con 10s of media players preinstalled
Con More than 50 tweaking softwares pre-installed
Con Includes non-free drivers
Con Only one Desktop Environment
Con Causes overheating on some hardwares
Other debian based XFCE distros- Xubuntu, Debian XFCE, Devuan leave small footprint on system whereas MXLinux uses too much CPU resources on same system.
Con Old software
Many software applications are older.
Con Longer boot time
Con Installer and configuration tools are different
Installer and configuration tools are different and can take some time getting used to.
Con Can be a little buggy sometimes
Although not outright system crashes or freezes, but programs not working correctly after an update is quite common. Some desktop environments can be temperamental. Examples: running Deepin DE at first and the zoom for the display is 150%. You can fix this by going to settings and setting the desktop to 100%, but then something else might happen, e.g. you lose icons on the dock. Minor headaches and some are easily fixable. Certainly not a deal breaker.
