Filed under
Linux

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

AntiX is not a lite version of SimplyMEPIS and it is not an official product of MEPIS. It is built from the MEPIS Linux core, but mostly it has a different set of default user applications reflecting the preferences of anti: fluxbox and ice window managers, Abiword, Gnumeric, Leafpad, Scite, Nano, gimp, xpdf, Firefox2, Sylpheed-claws, Dillo, Links2, Gaim, Xchat, gftp, Pan, Irssi, Raggle RSS reader, Gtk-Gnutella, bittorrent, flash, mozilla-mplayer, xmms, mplayer, audacity, xine, Midnight Commander, rox-filer, xarchive, xcdroast and graveman.
