"Then the network manager. Antix uses wicd. I was used to nm-applet. Wicd has problems with WDS networks (A wireless network on which multiple access point use the same ssid to create one big network. Used in my company). Wicd shows them all seperate, and networkmanager just shows one.

"Also, Wicd does not support 3g. I had to copy my wvdial.conf and write an /etc/init.d/ boot script so that it would connect at boot. And a crontab reconnect every 4 hours because T-Mobile kickes me out every 4 hours. Again not a problem, but maybe some users find it confusing. The apps in Antix are good balanced. No big openoffice, but gnumeric and abiword. No evolution but Claws mail. Firefox replaced by Iceweasel because of debian. I upgraded it to 3.5 right away, because 3.0.11 was a bit old."
