Description: Debian based minimal distro based on Window Managers instead of Desktop Environments.

Running this on M&A Companion Touchscreen netbook.
All external input slots. SD and USB.

ALL work. My extra Data partition auto mounts in file manager as user when needed.
All usb and SD cards automount in y file manager as user.

Lots of tools and Iceweasel is main browser which is same as Firefox.

My gear specs:

Pros: Lightweight distro based on Debian
Cons: None

I have been using AntiX for a couple of years now, & it has made my life easy not having to search for any extras, which I had to do when running plain Debian.

Being lightweight, it is a good distro to bring your old machine back to life with modern software.

(A good replacement for that old XP machine.)
