    AntiX videos and Fun Stuff

    dolphin_oracle [d_o] has a lot of videos to help folks with learning what to do with AntiX and MX Linux.
    The older videos can give you a lot of help with the newer versions.

    From how to make a bootable "making a live usb from windows" video at:

    and a demo of how low a spec a machine install at:

    How to pronounce AntiX from the man himself.
    I'll chime in on the name.

    1. As posted by masinick, yes, sounds like antics - fun, frivolous.

    2. Also it can sound like antiques (if you put on a Greekish accent) ie for old boxes.

    3. As also mentioned above, yes anti X ie against X in a very, very general sense. ie all the bloat that comes with an X desktop, with X being kde, gnome etc.

    4. Finally and simply, it is anticapitalista's X distro. anticapitalista got shortened by masinick and others to anti many moons ago so it becomes anti'sX. But you have to remove the 's otherwise it sounds like the moral majority (sic) anti sex campaign.

    Now mate has an area in its wiki for the pronunciations (ma-tay).

    Currently I have found only this video: (I do not understand Deutsch language)

    Now for the fun part for me:
    Build a Custom antiX-mate install, Part I - Install the net iso.
    There are 5 parts starting at
    To get the antiX alpha 2 net images 'stretch' .ISO
    Background to that .iso
    MX - MX Linux relies on the excellent upstream work by Linux and the open-source community, deploying Xfce4 as Desktop Environment on top of a Debian Stable base. We draw from the core antiX system and and include work and ideas used by Warren Woodford for his MEPIS project. Ongoing backports and outside additions to our Repos serve to keep components current with developments.
