I'm going to keep antiX on my backup partition, but I was just thinking about whether I should download and install antiX-full instead of keeping antiX-base. The full install is only about 400Mb larger, and with a 16Gb partition space, the ISO size is not really an issue. What might be an issue is that I've only been skunked once for using wireless using the antiX-full 8.5, and I don't know how much difference there is between antiX-full-8.5 and antiX-full-M11 and antiX-base-M11 as far as wireless capability.

The wireless I used before was antiX8.5 Marek Edelman. Does anyone here have any thoughts, comments, complaints concerning the differences on using wireless between antiX-8.5 and antiX-M11?
Also, are there any differences between the usage of antiX-base and antiX-full for wireless connection in your opinion?

BTW, I have Broadcom wireless and it's on a Dell D600 laptop.

I have M11 on a Dell D800 with Broadcom wireless and it worked fine "out of the box".

I downloaded and burned both the M8.5 and M11 versions, just in case! I can always carry both in the laptop bag for live CD's when I travel from place to place :!: :wink:
