antiX 15, very light distro with Linux kernel 4.0 and SysVinit


antiX is a GNU / Linux distribution light and cutting-edge, based on Debian Testing and with a design that has always tried to offer many possibilities despite using a window manager like flux box. An example of this versatility in terms of customization options is the fact of being able to use a dark theme or opt for a light or metallic one, for which we can press F6 during startup and select.

This is just one of the novelties of the antiX beta 15, available for a few hours and that also incorporates the Linux kernel 4.0. This offers not only the stability and security of a very new version and the support for a large amount of newly arrived hardware, but also the enormous benefit of live patching, which is nothing more than being able to apply patches without the need to reboot. the team.

This beta has been created using Devuan's debootstrap, Debian fork that arose among those users dissatisfied with Systemd so in this distro we are going to have SysVinit. And as for the design, it brings as a novelty, in addition to the aforementioned metallic theme, a new menu and a menu editor, but also a bug with the wallpaper changer has been fixed.

antiX is available for 32-bit and 64-bit platforms, and can be installed on computers with just 64 MB of RAM (although in those cases it will be necessary to appeal to a swap file). We can get it from the download section, on the official page.
