    antiX jessie based versions (antiX-15 and antiX-16.x) will reach end of life at the end of June 2020.

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    Thank you anti. What will happen to my installed Jessie version?

    As an experiment I happened to be on one of my old P-III machines today and right now I am using Links2 browser to read and reply to the antiX forum. All from my antiX-16 install, in 384MB or RAM. NetSurf and Links2 work for browsing and Audacious for music and internet radio streams.

    I was able to post using Links2. But it was difficult to find my way around in the text mode browser. I then tried this post in NetSurf. I had difficulty logging in since NetSurf does not seem to support the scripts on WordPress. When I tried to login off the top menu it failed. But when I used the bottom of the screen it worked.

    It’s an interesting experiment but I wouldn’t want to be stuck with only a P-III and antiX-16 for long. antiX-19 runs fine on my other P-III.

    You won’t get any upgrades from Debian nor antiX.

    I don’t get any support for Windows 2000 either, or DOS, or an old OSX. But antiX-16 will continue to be more useful than any of those old OS’s even without support.
