antiX is a fast, lightweight and easy to install Linux live CD distribution based on Debian Testing for Intel-AMD x86 compatible systems. It provides antiX magic with a set of environments suitable for older computers. Its goal is to Linux to the novice and veteran to provide a lightweight but full-featured, flexible free operating system. It should be able to run on the vast majority of computers – from the 64 MB memory but with 128 MB swap partition of the old PII system to the latest high-end machines. The minimum memory configuration recommended for antiX is 128 MB RAM, and the installer requires at least 2.2 GB of hard disk space. AntiX can also be used as a quick start emergency disc to use.
