Linux never ceases to amaze me - particularly the light-weight distros aimed for low powered PCs! There are so many options and depending on your need and suitability you can pick and choose which one to use. Plus, it brings your old machine back to life without compromising on the security and with the state-of-the-art applications! You can't ever think of that with any other operating system, for sure.
I came across the latest release of AntiX in distrowatch. I have never used AntiX before and thought of trying it in VirtualBox. And surely I am amazed with what I saw.
