Although lightweight, antiX Linux also includes basic software such as system administration and customization, including a package manager, system backup and restore tools, and tools for configuring system network and firewall settings.
One that makes it different from another distro like Ubuntu is AntiX Linux uses the “sysvinit or runit” for system initialization, while Ubuntu and its derivative use “systemd”.
