@dreamer: "Hear, hear"
I always tell people there are two things to know about Linux one is good news and the other bad.
The good news about Linux is: "You can do anything you want..."
The bad news is: "You can do anything you want..."

:bagoverhead:
Yep. You will feel empowered and you will feel like you don't know enough. The destiny of any Linux user is to become a geek or have another geek take care of the system. Window is also a little geeky, Mac maybe a little less. The popularity of mobile might be because it's so geek unfriendly. Android or iOS actively discourage you (actually stop you) from doing anything that can alter the system in any way. I think Wayland is heading the same way. Forbid tinkering and system will stay stable (or so they believe).

@anticapitalista & @BitJam, I sure hope no one thinks I, in any way, devalue or am critical of the antiX-MX team efforts and history.
Not in the least! You should feel free to use any distro or OS you want! In addition, we tried to make it easy to customize so that people would customize it, perhaps in ways we had not envisioned. I hope you don't mind that we gave suggestions we think will make your task much easier.

I wasn't trying to be critical of you or your efforts; I was trying to answer Richard's question:

What is the base antiX origin for MX?
The antiX-base plus systemd-shim, systemd and what else?

One user already has put a Buster-Gnome respin up for download, even without us populating a Buster repo with MX apps--they apparently keep working fine on Buster. The upgrade procedure was not that hard, according to the user.

@BitJam I always 'try' to appreciate help. As my wife will tell you "I'm not 'real' good with criticism." :lipsrsealed:

You have to fax a special message to Linus. ;)

4.20 is in the test repo, and antiX also has a 4.20 kernel. You currently have to go outside the repo to get Nvidia and Virtualbox versions to build on it, though Debian is working on Vbox 6.
