antiX-M11 'Jayaben Desai' released

Just over a year since the release of antiX-M8.5, the antiX-team are pleased to announce that antiX MEPIS 11 'Jayaben Desai' - a fast, light, very flexible and complete desktop and livecd based on Debian Testing and SimplyMEPIS - is now available in full, base and core versions (for 686 and 486 kernel all using hybridiso). This release defaults to a fully customised icewm-Rox desktop (fluxbox, wmii and dwm are also installed) using a SimplyMEPIS 2.6.36-4 kernel, our own assistants to help configuration, and the usual range of applications for desktop use. Latest Iceape (2.0.13-1) for internet needs, Abiword (2.8.6) and gnumeric (1.10.14) for office use, qmmp and goggles music manager (0.12.1) for audio, gxine, mplayer and gnome-mplayer for video, gppp (dial-up), wicd (1.7), umt-panel2 (from aptosid) for GPRS/UMTS/3G and ceni (2.21) for network connection, pidgin (2.7.11) for chat. Many cli apps are also included such as Alpine for email, moc for audio, elinks for browsing, abcde and ripit for cd ripping and much more. Features include a cli-installer script for fast and light install, live with persistence, 'remaster on the fly', new boot cheatcodes for setting dpi and desktop windows manager with or without icons, antix2usb to easily install to usb stick. Many languages are fully supported out of the box with the language chosen at live CD boot carrying over to install. Chinese, Japanese and Korean fonts are included as well as ibus in the full version.

antiX works on computers with as little as 64 MB RAM, though 128MB RAM is the recommended minimum and the 486 kernel version should work on AMD K5/k6. antiX is fast and has low RAM usage running live or installed.

You can download the iso files from here (but please use the torrents)

I fired it up on a USB stick on my Acer Aspire Netbook, and I have to say it looks terrific! Great work by everybody. I am going to install it and make it my standard OS for that machine.

Thanks for a great effort.

One sweltering summer afternoon in August 1976, Jayaben Desai decided she wasn’t going to take it anymore. Desai, who had arrived from India eight years earlier, was working in the dispatch department of the Grunwick film processing plant in Willesden, London. The workforce was predominantly made up of Asian women, some of whom were unhappy with their working conditions.

Desai said she walked out after her son claimed unfair dismissal by the company and she had been told she had to work overtime. Her parting words to the manager were: “What you are running here is not a factory, it is a zoo. In a zoo, there are many types of animals. Some are monkeys who dance on your fingertips, others are lions who can bite your head off. We are those lions, Mr Manager.”

Three days later, workers at the Grunwick plant went on strike for the right to be represented by a trade union. The media dubbed them “strikers in saris”.

The broad contours of the dispute were unremarkable, but Grunwick is remembered because it marked the first time that south Asian women were seen to challenge the stereo­type of being silent and subservient.

When is antiX-11 likely to hit the European mirrors? Would like to give it a try.

Hopefully soon, but the server it is on is slow, due to it being overloaded. You could try using the torrent. It will probably be quicker.

FWIW - just finished the download of antiX-M11-686.iso - 5:39:50 from the Linux Tracker torrent ( http://linuxtracker.org/download.php?id ... so.torrent ) - thanks for everyone seeding - mine added now.

Thanks for another great distribution :clap: It just keeps getting better and better.
Silly user comment: relhom's dolph wallpaper just plain rocks.

I typically use antiX for installing on friends' older machines and my netbook
Getting the wow :spinning: comments from them about the speed and quality compared to their previous proprietary os is priceless.

Read through the release notes and am even more impressed. One item though,
Sakasa for the never-ending supply of quality wallpaper. http://bestfreewallpapers.net/tiki-browse_gallery.php?galleryId=11

ends in a 404.

Looks great. Downloaded via torrent and am helping to seed right now. Installed with "xorg-cheats" from the full download on an Aspire One. It picked up the big 24"led monitor with no input from me. "Real cool background" was the first comment from my 12 year old son. He has been happily using it all day with no issues. This really allows this little pc to continue to function well.
Great work!
Thanks
