I think he really does understand the different target users of antiX and MX.

Regarding Sparky, I tried using the LXDE (or LXQT? can't recall) for a while some years back but just couldn't grow to like it and it was axed from my collection of distros.

The only Sparky that I have ever been able to get consistently stable results from is their Openbox based Sparky minimalGUI, more specifically Stretch based 4.7.
