Partially true.

Users who misspell "Windows" as "Windoze" intentionally will be considered stupid.

AntiX uses a customized desktop based on IceWM, but Fluxbox is also installed (or part of the default desktop?).

Yes, the 'main' version of antiX M11 has both IceWM and Fluxbox installed, but defaults to IceWM, at log-in.

However, antiX-M11-base version uses Fluxbox as the default WM.

All antiX versions are based on Debian's Testing branch ... and are all fast and light on resources.
The .iso file size is, well under 700Mb and can be installed on machines with under 256Mb of RAM.
Great for older hardware, processors and computers.

I have tried Antix and i got quiet impressed. It comes with very fiew gnome dependencies and it is fast and lighweight.

When i was trying it, i installed Xfce on top of it and i really enjoyed it (and i have tested some other xfce distro's too)

So, if you are a fluxbox fan, i think it is a great solution.

Don't get me wrong, I hope that Kendall can find the time to get the next release out the door. Then as a "Rolling Release" we wont have to go thru this again. The Mint Fluxbox has always been a very well polished edition and has always worked great for me. Hopefully that will continue.

Finally I can stop having to install and configure fluxbox myself, though I do kinda enjoy it but This is great news. May the box be with you.

Since Gnome 3 has crapped up building things on top of LMDE, will the next update pack do any damage to a Fluxbox setup running on top of LMDE Gnome 2 Pack 3? Other than a couple of GTK 2 themes set with Lxappearance, everthing else i have running is pretty DE agnostic. Libre Office, browsers, Thunderbird, VLC, Gimp, PCManFM. Also, would it be a viable alternative to run Fluxbox on top of LMDE XFCE, rather than a Gnome 3 based LMDE re-spin?

If you got your programs from the repository, don't worry, they will still work.
