antiX is a fast, lightweight and easy to install systemd-free linux live CD distribution based on Debian Stable for Intel-AMD x86 compatible

This is primarily a point-release upgrade of antiX-17.2 (Helen Keller) with a newer L1TF/Foreshadow and Meltdown/Spectre patched kernel, a few bugfixes, updated translations and some upgraded and new packages.
The major change is that we now offer options for LUKS encrypted root, home, and swap partition at installation.

As usual we offer the following completely systemd-free flavours for both 32 and 64 bit architecture.

antiX-full (c1GB) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm plus full libreoffice suite.

antiX-base (c680MB so fits on a cd) – 4 windows managers – IceWM (default), fluxbox, jwm and herbstluftwm.

antiX-core (c330MB) – no X, but should support most wireless.

antiX-net (c170MB)- no X. Just enough to get you connected (wired) and ready to build.

The 32 bit version uses a non-pae kernel.

So what has changed since antiX-17.2 release?

* new 4.9.146 kernel patched for L1TF/Foreshadow and Meltdown/Spectre exploits
* all packages upgraded to Debian 9.6
* LUKS encryption options on gui installer (not yet available on the cli-installer)
* firefox-esr upgraded to 60.4 (Quantum)
* Removal of pulseaudio and pavaucontrol
* newsboat replaces newsbeuter
* improved localization of applications
* A few more languages were added to the F2 live boot menu
