About antiX

antiX is a fast, lightweight and easy to install linux live CD distribution based on Debian Testing for Intel-AMD x86 compatible systems. antiX offers users the "antiX Magic" in an environment suitable for old computers. So don't throw away that old computer yet! The goal of antiX is to provide a light, but fully functional and flexible free operating system for both newcomers and experienced users of Linux. It should run on most computers, ranging from 64MB old PII 266 systems with pre-configured 128MB swap to the latest powerful boxes. 128MB RAM is recommended minimum for antiX. The installer needs minimum 2.2GB hard disk size. antiX can also be used as a fast-booting rescue cd.

At the moment antiX comes as a full distro (c700MB), a base distro (c360MB) and a new core distro (c140MB) all for 32 bit 486 (PI and K5/K6 AMD) and 686 kernels and also in 64 bit. For those who wish to have total control over the install, use antiX-core and build up.

Present released version, 07 August 2012: [antiX-12 'Edelweißpiraten']
