AntiX M8.0 Public Test 1 is now available

Posted 12-29-2008 at 01:53 PM by masinick

A fast, easy to use, surprisingly solid test system called AntiX has been released for public testing.

AntiX is my favorite small, fast system. I use it when I am going to be doing primarily Web browsing because it boots so fast, I can start it up, call up my Web browser, check for Spam messages in my Email, clean out the unwanted messages, then scan my Inbox and do the same, retaining the messages I want, to be later stored in a POP3 Email client. I can do all of that and get off the system in 5-10 minutes, which makes AntiX really handy when I am in a big hurry.

I also use AntiX as a rescue CD when I want to change my GRUB boot loader, modify my /etc/fstab, or perform similar system maintenance.

Finally, I use AntiX live, loading it into memory from CD or USB when I want really fast access. This takes 3-4 minutes to set up, then runs extremely rapidly after that.

Highly recommended, flexible software. This test release works fine, I love it.
