antiX - debian-based distro - no systemd

Just wondering if anybody out there has tried this distro?

It is based on Debian, but without systemd, has a KDE4 desktop, but not a lot 
of excess crap. It comes as a live CD, and can function as a rescue disc, as 
well; would be nicer with TDE installed, but we can't get everything we want. 
Also has a net install version, but this requires Ethernet. 

Most of the images fit on a CD, and the base images come without LibreOffice 
(for those of us out there who, like me, hate it). In any case, it was 
created without systemd from the start. By the way, it is hosted in the MEPIS 
repositories, or so I read somewhere. 

I intend to give it a try on my next system reinstallation.
