MEPIS is obsolete so MX is your choice. One of the developers has built a KDE edition as well...

The Meta Package installer is one of the easiest ways to build up and customize a new desktop environment.

I can remember, quite a number of years ago now, creating a KDE-based distribution from an antiX image using the Meta Package installer.

I've been able to go the other way too. Long before the demise of MEPIS or the current situation with MX - an Xfce desktop configuration built from an antiX-based system, I also built desktop configurations of Xfce and LXDE from MEPIS systems using their toolchest.

Frankly, it's not that difficult to create your own desktop environment with any Debian-based system because the Debian repositories contain all that you need to install, build and configure numerous desktop environments and customize them with a variety of appearance and feature modifications.

I have no idea. For those who have older hardware, antiX, though not the only choice available, is one of the most flexible options available for 32 or 64 bit systems using Intel-based hardware.

The proof that antiX is a good choice is that it also serves as the foundational piece from which MX (the MEPIS replacement) is built. Understand that both MX and antiX, of course, are what they are because of other efforts in the food chain above them. Debian packaging is certainly at the heart of the work. Warren Woodford's past efforts with MEPIS formed the original foundation for antiX, though much of that foundation has since been replaced by newer work. Historical efforts from Klaus Knopper (KNOPPIX) and individual works from many other projects - quite a few of which are freely cited on the antiX site - show that it is the free and open collaboration of software developers, writers, testers, architects, and users that make up this excellent work.

I wouldn't short out Ubuntu. I feel that the *buntu efforts have shown a lot in terms of ways to get more people trying out free software. It isn't the right tool for everyone, but it's an important part of the ecosystem, just as I feel strongly about MX, antiX, and Debian. Each of them has a useful role and each of them have a different "sweet spot" that appeals to a certain user base.
