    I downloaded the Base version to install in a VM, but I had to go to the FAQ to learn that it’s Full minus LibreOffice.

    So, my suggestion is to clearly describe what the 3 versions are on the Download page. Something like this:

    There are 3 versions of antiX-17:
    1) Core (X MB) is the OS and some utilities
    2) Base (Y MB) adds dozens of applications and fits on a CD-ROM. Note that LibreOffice is not included.
    3) Full (Z MB) adds LibreOffice

    Also, please list the md5 checksums on the download page. I found them on Sourceforge, but it would be best to have them in both places.

    I hear ya. Even though the “Releases/News” header link is in plain sight, some folks won’t click.
    Embedding a (redundant and) truncated 3-liner summary description, as suggested in post #1, seems non-ideal.
    Better to place a callout / teaser immediately above the bolded H2 Downloads header text (or immediately below it)
    Tip: “Releases/News”, linked above, explains the differences between the Full / Base / Core versions

    were able. I disabled comments to avoid spam.

    antiX-17 FAQ

    also mentions that libreoffice is not included on base.

    exactly! That’s what I was looking for yesterday, but didn’t see it because it’s not visible enough.

    That should be linked on the front page. I suggest above the youtube video. Something like: “antiX-17 is the current version. See the [release notes].”

    This way people can find it very easily.

    And thanks for adding md5 to download page.
