Description: Nine months since the release of antiX M8.2, the antiX team announce that antiX MEPIS 8.5 - a fast, light, flexible and complete desktop and live CD based on SimplyMEPIS and Debian 'testing' - is now available in full and base versions. This release defaults to a fully customised IceWM desktop (Fluxbox, wmii and dwm are also installed) using a SimplyMEPIS 2.6.32 kernel, tweaked MEPIS Assistants for better compatibility in antiX and the usual range of applications for desktop use. Iceape for Internet needs, AbiWord and Gnumeric for office use, XMMS and Google's music manager for audio, gxine, MPlayer and GNOME MPlayer for video.... antiX works on computers with as little as 64 MB RAM.
Keywords: SimplyMEPIS-based IceWM kernel-2.6.32 Iceape AbiWord Gnumeric

Pros: Minimal requirements
Cons:


Installed it on my IBM Thinpad A20m, a 10 year old laptop with only 256 mb RAM. The install was quite easy and my wifi card recognized without a problem. Very happy to have saved my old laptop from the thrash.
