@rokytnji.1 does antiX work on ARM? I didn't notice a release labeled that way, but I thought you might know.
It doesn't work, at least not in any RPi that I have. It's not designed for ARM

Arm might be a place where antiX could find a nice user base. I'd guess, especially given its light footprint. :number1: Anyway I just thought I'd throw that out.... there's no need to pay any attention to the thought though. :bagoverhead:

The native OS for the Raspberry Pi, Raspian, is optimised so well that it would be difficult to beat. It's hands-down better than any other Pi distro.

Personally, I don't think it's anything MX or antiX should get involved with.

I'm interested to know what didn't work for you; I've only had time to take a quick look at my Raspberry Pi 4, and basics all seemed to be OK.

The EDID doesn't work yet, it works perfectly on the 3B/3B+/3A+, & there is no USB booting yet, again works fine on the 3B/3B+/3A+ - both 'to be sorted' - but it ain't there yet, (as of 13/7/19). (Dual monitors may or may not work yet either.)

I'm waiting for there next hardware release (whenever?). It should have the USB-C problem sorted (amongst other little bugs that they will be discovering).

As well as giving the various dev's more time to port things to all of these new changes the v4 brings with it.

I'm really looking forward to having a couple of these guys though. :)

Hello again. Could someone tell me if there are any of these miniature devices on which mxlinux can be installed?

Search for "x86 single board computers". There are several including the Atomic Pi & Udoo x86.
Never having tried to install MX on one of these there's no guarantee - but they're running Intel Atom chips so it should be possible.

I have a Cubi board based 'nano' computer, it's Intel based, & has Linux compatability, (at least, with Antix & MX, they are what I use), it's about 4"x4"x2".

There is also this one - https://www.novatech.co.uk/pc/range/nov ... npi39.html - very similar to mine.
