AntiX-Core is the minimalist version of AntiX, which is a debian/mepis spin on linux. The AntiX-Core contains all the essentials that a budding user would need to create his or her own flavor of linux. However, the user must be well-accustomed to the terminal and figure out what packages that need to be installed for a functional system. This includes knowing which window manager, audio and video drivers or packages to install. Another prerequisite is that the user must have wireless drivers/deb package available if one desires to install and configure the system exclusively with wireless internet.
Besides these two factors, I found it incredibly easy to install a fully functional linux system in just about ten minutes. The documentation is well written in the required files for moderation. On a side note, it is very handy to the user to have a handwritten list of repo sources on hand for easy access.
The only gripe I have with this distribution is that AntiX does not have any images optimized for 64-bit machines. All in all, AntiX-Core is my main go-to distribution for 32-bit systems, because it is minimalistic, contains no bloat, and easy to install and individualize. I am very satisfied with community’s work on this distribution and would highly recommend this to experienced linux users who want a minimalistic 32-bit machine.
