I gave it a try back when TDE was part of the AntiX distribution. It was nice
enough except for an incompatibility with my multiboot methodology, which keeps
a single partition with many apps, scripts and more I install outside the
package management system for mounting as /usr/local/. AntiX keeps much of its
differentiation from straight Debian in /usr/local/ in directories of the same
names I use instead of /opt/, so instead of trying to figure out a way to work
around the shared directories problems I simply dropped the idea of using it at all.
