antiX-M7.5 went gold

If you run a bit torrent program the latest antiX-M7.5 went final and is being seeded! Below is the torrent address...

antiX is a light weight Mepis Linux distro -

anticapitalista, release notes for Toussaint Louverture. (antiX-M7.5)

This release concentrates on 3 main areas.

1. Customized icewm.
2. antiX Control Center.
3. smxi script integration.

All three options were from community input to make antiX as user-friendly and flexible as possible.

1. Fully customized icewm.
antiX-M7.5 is probably the best configured OOTB icewm distro, thanks to the great work by OU812. Icewm in antiX-M7.5 works as a fully functioning and stylish desktop, with tools to customize as the user wishes.

2. antiX Control Center.
Inspired by the Control Center in TinyMe, OU812 developed one for antiX. Users can now carry out desktop, admin, networking and hardware related tasks from one central control center.

3. smxi script integration.
Thanks to h2, the smxi script can be used in antiX. This script enables users to keep their antiX rolling along and fully maintained. This has allowed antiX to be incredibly flexible (even more so the antiX-base version) If users wish they can 'sidux' or 'sid' their system, install newer kernels from Debian and sidux, install graphics drivers (ATI and nVidia), install other desktop environments such as xfce, kde, and install virtualbox and lots more!
