antiX 16.1 Full. Installation and Overview

New release of antiX 16.1 Full. Installation and Overview.
Release announcement:
“antiX 16.1 ‘Berta Cáceres’ released. Bug-fix version, including all updates from Debian ‘Jessie’ and security-patched kernels. Existing users of antiX 16 do not need to download and install; simply update via the repositories. So what is new? Not a lot, but we have included
two excellent new applications – live-kernel-updater and live-usb-maker. Debian 8.7, but free of systemd. And it fits on a CD. Great live USB features. As usual, antiX comes in 3 flavours for both 32-bit and 64-bit processors: Full – 4 windows managers (IceWM, Fluxbox, JWM,
herbstluftwm); Base – 3 windows managers (Fluxbox, JWM, herbstluftwm); Core-Libre – no X window, just enough to get you connected and ready to build. Uses a ‘libre’ kernel. Customised
4.4.10 LTS kernel with fbcondecor splash.”

antiX is a fast, lightweight and easy-to-install Linux live CD distribution based on Debian’s “Stable” branch for x86 compatible systems. antiX offers users the “antiX Magic” in an environment suitable for old computers. The goal of antiX is to provide a light, but fully
functional and flexible free operating system for both newcomers and experienced users of Linux. It should run on most computers, ranging from 256 MB old PIII systems with pre-configured swap to the latest powerful boxes. 256 MB RAM is recommended minimum for antiX. The
installer needs minimum 2.7 GB hard disk size. antiX can also be used as a fast-booting rescue CD. A special Xfce edition made in collaboration with the MEPIS Community called “MX” is also available.
