I would also point to antiX MX 14.3 which is one of the latest antiX babies. A really
good one, for oldies. 


There is a non-pae version as you can see.

Built with the antiX magic basis, it's super light. Using the repos from antiX, from
Mepis, and from Debian Wheezy, it can get many more packages once installed. 

Here is a feedback I posted at the antiX forum:

Since then, I have installed the MX 14.3 on other machines, with the same pleasure of use
each time.

Best regards,
