Anti and MEPIS announce the release of antiX MEPIS 7.5, "Toussaint Louverture"

Built using the MEPIS Linux 7.0 core including the MEPIS 2.6.22 kernel and utilities, along with selected additions from Debian Lenny, this lightweight OS is especially appropriate for older hardware and users who like a very fast and highly configurable system.

New features based on community contributions are led by the antiX Control Centre, which provides a single handy place for managing desktop, system, network, and hardware. Also the well-tested smxi script permits the user to maintain a rolling upgrade of kernels and drivers, with a choice of kernel versions that covers default, Debian Unstable and sidux. Strong community support comes from a revised set of FAQs, the MEPIS Wiki and User's Manual, and the antiX and MepisLovers forums.

Pre-installed window managers Fluxbox and IceWM have been redesigned for better function and aesthetics, and offer superb out-of-the-box usability. Conky and ROX Desktop also come installed and ready to use. All applications have been upgraded to the latest Debian Testing versions, including Abiword 2.6.4 and Iceweasel 3.01.

An upgrade script is available to bring users from antiX MEPIS 7.0 or antiX MEPIS 7.2 to 7.5. Furthermore, antiX MEPIS 7.5 is available in a base configuration, giving users maximum setup flexibility.

Peppermint 7 Released

Peppermint 7 launched a few days ago. Peppermint is a lightweight Ubuntu-based Linux distribution with an emphasis on speed and simplicity. Although the name is similar to Linux Mint, the projects aren't directly related. Peppermint originally was envisioned as a "spicier" alternative to Mint—whatever that means! Many distros come with a wide assortment of feature-rich applications, and that's great for power users who need those apps. But older machines can struggle to cope with those demanding distros. Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more

Why I’m Unlikely to Ever Return Microsoft’s Love

Every time I write an article criticizing the depth of Microsoft’s proclaimed love of Linux, as well as questioning the motive behind it, I receive return criticism, often from places I would’ve, in the past, least expected, such as from within the GNU/Linux community. In places like Slashdot, some open source subreddits, and even occasionally on FOSS Force, there are commenters who accuse me of letting the past blind me to the great work that Microsoft is now doing for Linux and open source.
