antiX 16.2 Linux OS Is Based on Debian GNU/Linux 8.8 Jessie, but Ditches systemd

While work on the antiX 17 branch continues with a complete rebase on the soon-to-be-released Debian GNU/Linux 9 “Stretch” operating system, antiX 16.2 is here rebased on the recently released Debian GNU/Linux 8.8 “Jessie” repositories, shipping with a customized Linux 4.4.10 LTS kernel with fbcondecor splash. In the good tradition of the project, antiX 16.2 does not ship with the systemd init system that the Debian Project uses it since the Jessie series, nor systemd-shim. The release also includes LibreOffice 4.3.3-2, Firefox 52.2.0 ESR, Claws Mail 3.13.0, SMTube 17.1.0, GNOME MPlayer, XMMS, and eudev.
