"Desktop & Apps
You can use IceWM or Fluxbox for the desktop environments in antiX.
Each of them is lightweight and fast, making them perfect for older
hardware. You won’t find all of the KDE or Gnome bells and
whistles but who cares? If that’s what you want then you
shouldn’t be using antiX in the first place as there are
other distributions out there who will give you all of the eye
candy and desktop bloat you want. antiX is about being lean and
mean and the IceWM and Fluxbox deskstop environments are just that.
"IceWM was the default desktop for me and my preferred one. When
you login you’ll note some interesting system stats running
in the upper left corner of your desktop. And the desktop wallpaper
is quite nice too, featuring pretty clouds floating over some water
and land. It’s quite a…heavenly wallpaper for the most
"To get started using IceWM just click the AntiX button (where
the Windows start button is) or simply right-click your desktop and
you’ll get a list of app menus. Navigating IceWM’s
menus is easy even if you haven’t used them before. The
desktop panel bar contains links to the control panel, exit, web
browser, text editor, terminal, volume and home folder. You can
also use multiple desktops if you want by clicking on the desktop
number on the panel."
