Yes, congrats to antiX...

@AC:
Yes, kudos for getting antiX to be doing so well on distro-watch.

And, to clarify, thanks for the hard-work and the expansion of
antiX from it's old narrower focus of only underpowered-machine
distro, to a more generalized, flexible, rolling release distro. :clap:

Clearly, the word is getting around, about its newer characteristics!

That's pretty impressive considering that there haven't many news about antiX.

Just wanted to add my congrats to 'AC', for generalizing
'antiX-8.5', from a distro seemingly to ONLY be useful
for old/under-powered computers, into a more generic
distro that has proven very USEFUL as a platform for
tailoring-on one's CHOICE of desktop-environments AND
one that is truly a full ROLLING-RELEASE, based on
Debian's 'TESTING' repository. :clap:

It's so nice to have so many high-quality Debian-family choices!

I have to add my little $.02 cents worth here,...
I just installed antiX 8.5 (added lxde and other stuff). I'm very impressed! So glad to see it listed on it's own on Distrowatch,...(it's a terrific distro). Powerful,..but light on the resources.
