Description: "The antiX team is proud to announce that an updated antiX MEPIS 8.2 final is available at MEPIS mirrors. This release defaults to a fully customised IceWM desktop (Fluxbox is also installed) using a SimplyMEPIS 2.6.27 kernel and tweaked MEPIS Assistants for better compatibility in antiX. Ten languages are fully supported out of the box, with the language chosen at live CD boot carrying over to install. Boot time should be faster, particularly if the 'Faster' option is chosen at live CD boot menu and RAM usage low. antiX-Control Centre has been further improved, new scripts for screenshots, phonebook, mouse configuration have been added."
Keywords: IceWm kernel-2.6.27 Ten-languages

Pros: Great install, works on any hardware. Easy to use.
Cons: 3 G wireless hard to set up. (for me that is).

There are so many options with this you could go on for days. I'm no pro but still have no problem navigating the entire system. It has everything I need and I can easily add more apps when I want them.
DSL and Wireless were a breeze but 3g wireless is still causing me problems. I had no problem in other distros but can't find a way to make this one work.
It may very well be my lack of experience.
I like this distro and would recommend it to anyone.
