Distro: antiX-13.1_386-full Luddite 19 June 2013
Time has passed since June and this February. I have a AntiX 11 box that is current but I keep on top of apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
on that install. I have a ran Mate, RazorQT, LX panels, you name it on that AntiX 11 base install.
I would not recommend installing now as a dist-upgrade may take years to get it current. The newer a release. The less
I have upgrade kernel and programs?
Although a kernel upgrade is really never that necessary.
Neither are programs if you do not wish to.
