Unfortunately, antiX-distro is not directly based on Debian but instead is a Mepis offshoot.
antiX uses the Mepis kernel ... antiX does use, both the Debian and Mepis repositories.
Not saying that antiX and/or Mepis are bad, cause they are both good.
I use antiX (fluxbox) on my old laptop, as antiX is the best distro that I have found for older hardware.
The antiX config files/scripts are different than what Kendall has given us with Mint-9 Fluxbox CE.
I assume, that Kendall will continue with what he has already built with Fluxbox, and will do his best to improve on it.
