I used antiX for a while back when I was enamored with Openbox (v. 7.5 or thereabouts). Even used it on a few of my old computers in my classroom at school. Drifted away when later later editions had problems picking up the Broadcom wireless adapter in one of my laptops. And after I had grown tired of adding newly installed packages to the menu by hand.

oops ... that should have been fluxbox, not openbox
Yeah, I had it installed for a bit. It was a little app-happy for my taste but a very nice OS overall.
I might put it on my other computer, an Acer that's a few years old and came with Windows Vista installed (ugh.) I ditched Vista ages ago and I use it to play with Linux distros from time to time.
I had previously been running Crunchbang Linux which is yet another Ubuntu spin-off and the best distro (in my humble opinion) that i had used to date. But now wattOS R3 appears and is already pushing Crunchbang for top spot!
I'm hooked on trying out as many Linux distro's as i possibly can so after reading all the posts in this forum i think i just might have a look at Peppermint OS + Zorin OS when time allows.
Yes, there is an LXDE spin of Mint, and Kendall is one of the main dudes involved in its development. The current version is Linux Mint 9 LXDE. However, I already have Peppermint installed and it uses the same repositories. Plus, I also have wattOS installed and while I can do all LXDE desktops, I want to branch out a bit more (at least until I decide I hate all other desktops and go to all LXDE/Openbox. ;) )
I installed LMDE x64 a bit ago. I'm waiting for updates to install, then I'll probably install a different desktop. If I have to use Gnome, I'll only use the one in Mint because I like it the best but I have options, so I'm going to use them. Now I just have to decide which desktop...
Edit: Hmm, it looks like LMDE has only Gnome, KDE and XFCE in its repos. No Openbox, LXDE, Fluxbox, which are all available variants of Linux Mint 9. I've gotta say, I'm kinda bummed by that. I might need to find some more Debian repos.
Eventually, they're going to release Linux Mint 10 KDE. That's my favorite Mint, but it failed its first test so they have more work to do on the .iso. I hadn't seen any word on the LXDE edition, though, so that's nice to see. I might have to get it when it's released and put it on my other computer.
