antiX is a fast, lightweight, and easy to install system-free Linux live CD distribution based on Debian Stable for Intel-AMD x86 compatible systems. It is perfect for older hardware.
antiX offers users the â€œantiX Magicâ€ in an environment suitable for old and new computers. So donâ€™t throw away that old computer yet. The goal of antiX is to provide a light but a fully functional and flexible free operating system for newcomers and experienced Linux users. It should run on most computers, ranging from 256MB old PIII systems with pre-configured swap to the latest powerful boxes. 256MB RAM is the recommended minimum for antiX. The installer needs a minimum of 4.0GB hard disk size.
antiX can also be used as a fast-booting rescue cd and works extremely well running live with or without persistence on a USB stick or â€˜frugalâ€™ on a hard drive. Customize your own version with our live â€˜remasterâ€™ tools or create â€˜snapshotsâ€™ of an installed system.
At the moment, antiX comes as a full distro, a base distro, a core distro, and a net distro for 32 bit and 64-bit computers. Those who wish to have total control over the install, use antiX-core or antiX-net, and build up. Note that the net version will need an ethernet connection.
