    This is an old Intel Atom N270 netebook with a dodgy BIOS. All the other distros I tried would run/install OK, but give kernel panic within a few minutes and reboot or lock up. Maybe the hardware is fritzing out, or maybe it was systemd issues, but it runs great on Antix17 (Debian Testing). Antix16 failed to load the Intel graphics drive, and left me stuck with 800×600 vesa graphics, but Antix17 is loading the Intel graphics driver correctly..

    Anyway great work, and thanks. I like the themes you created for all the window managers. These are the first new icewm themes I’ve seen in a while.
