Antix Linux 13 beta 1 has been released

The first development build of antiX 13 is now ready for testing. antiX is a Debian-based lightweight and fast Linux distribution that should work well on ageing computer systems. This beta release comes in a "base" flavour only which means Fluxbox or JWM, but no IceWM and no office suite. From the release announcement: "antiX 13 beta1 base ISO images are available for testing in 32-bit and 64-bit editions. What's new? Linux kernel 3.6.11; dist-upgrade as of 7 January 2013; more options in meta installer; MuPDF replaces ePDFView and zathura; Midnight Commander removed, use Ranger for CLI file manager; installers now give XFS, JFS and ext2 as options, Btrfs is available, but only use for data, not for installing onto; numerous internal changes to antiX scripts. Enjoy!"

antiX is a fast, lightweight and easy-to-install Linux live CD distribution based on Debian's "Testing" 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 64 MB old PII 266 systems with pre-configured 128 MB swap to the latest powerful boxes. 128 MB RAM is recommended minimum for antiX. The installer needs minimum 2.2 GB hard disk size. antiX can also be used as a fast-booting rescue CD.
