Hi, this distro is just AWESOME! I loved the installer, which helps a completely new Windows-comer to install thanks to those nice instructions, a nice set of default apps (thanks for introducing me to Mpv media player), a well-made control center (is center spelled wrong in Antix??) along with lots of helpful hand-made utilities, also like the idea of your remester app, so that anyone can have an .iso file of Antix ready out-of-box with his/her preferred user apps.
the only thing missing is a nice theme :P

I had to move to Crunchbang++ because Antix cause my wireless issue to show up again :x :x

keep up the good work :wink:

Could you elaborate on your wireless issue / provide information on your wireless card?

about a week ago I was installing Debian 8, the power went off in the middle of the installation, after the power came back I started my laptop to begin the installation again, the installer detected my wireless card (as usual), but it was never able to show me a list of wireless networks in range, I tried turning it on using the wireless button (the one that you use your finger to push) but nothing happened, even the LED won't blank as it usually does, so I installed Windows XP to use the "repair" service that they provide by default, and it worked!

AntiX caused this issue to reappear :cry: but never mind, because I'm back to AntiX and it's working fine this time :D

Code:
$ lspci | grep -i wireless
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Qualcomm Atheros AR242x / AR542x Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)
