antiX M-7, The Fat-free Mepis

,----[ Quote ]
| I would say that AntiX is highly recommended for those who have older
| machines because of its dependable hardware detection and its light
| footprint. While it did not perform as well as Xubuntu on my older laptop, I
| still consider AntiX as a very promising distro that could easily beat any
| lightweight distribution in the near future.

Great. What's the lightweight version of Leopard and Vistaster? You know, for
older PCs that need some more recent features...

New AntiX distro makes older hardware usable

| I've been a fan of SimplyMEPIS for years. The distribution was one of the
| early pioneers in the field of user-friendly Linux development, and to this
| day offers a system that usually "just works." Earlier this month the MEPIS
| site announced a community variation for older computers based on
| SimplyMEPIS. AntiX is an installable live CD that features a modern kernel,
| recent X server, and lighter applications for use on computers with as little
| as 64MB RAM. I tried it, and liked what I found. * * *
