I installed antiX, running great! Way better than a 6 years outdated OS (windows xp).
That doesn't mean that tiny core is bad, I really appreciate the effort tiny core devs have put in it, but I wanted a full fledged lightweight desktop.

Hey, glad you like it!

You are absolutely right - no distro is bad - like shoes, one just finds the one that fits them the best.

And like potato chips, you don't have to support only one distro!  :)

There is no shame in using the right tool for the right job depending on your current needs or skills.  TC will be here when/if you need it!

"I've seen distros you pleople wouldn't believe..." (epic plagiarism from Blade Runner)  ;D

-NanoLinux OS https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=Nanolinux (i think it's a marooned project already)
-Ubuntu base + Lxde (systemd)
-Minimal Linux Live (MILL) - https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=mll (not systemd, active)

For me TinyCore is still the best of all. Seriously.
