An Ultra-Lite MEPIS Derivative, AntiX "antics", is Available for Testing
MEPIS has announced that the release candidate of a community built and maintained ultra-lite derivative of MEPIS has been released for public testing. AntiX is the brainchild of MEPIS community member anticapitalista, who wanted a version of MEPIS that would work well on very old PC hardware. Testers and users can contact anti via the forums at mepislovers.org or mepis.org
