Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Hi Klaus,

I have many different versions of Knoppix doing useful work.

I rate it 10+++++.

The oldest is 3.4. I have quite a few systems using 3.6.

One server uses 6.4.3.

This box is running 7.2 from a SD USB 2.0. It is fast and very nice to use. And it is easy to change versions.

A bitcoin box uses 7.6.

VERY IMPRESSIVE!!

I would ADD ONE FEATURE -- Clone = Makes a running copy of the current version with programs and data included on a different memory device so I can easily make a known good backup . Including a way to just verify that the backup is correct. I have had some copy problems where not all files worked once copied and in other cases 'copied' files were missing. 7.2 for instance is missing some CUPS filters??

For some reason dd doesn't copy from SDUSB 2.0 to another like device or copy from SD.bin [whole SD image copy] to an SDUSB 2.0 device?

I suspect some sort of USB problem. Maybe just not enough clock edges to the SD during a dd copy operation?

warm regards,
John

Really lightweight, stable and customizable but ANNOYINGLY bloated at first boot. All I'd want is office app, Web browsers and some basic computer applications but this is so bad that you have to SCROLL DOWN to see all of the apps it comes with.

Been with KNOPPIX for 12 years now, its never let me down.

Navigating through files, opening applications and launching web pages is blazingly fast. (due to me using Openbox and it being run on ram). With 2GB of ram and a very lightweight DE it's just perfect. It's Debian+.

When I first started using it I got the hang of it within half a year, don't be scared off if you're a new user, it's very user friendly. But like all operating systems, it'll take well over a year to be a master at them.

KNOPPIX may have fallen in popularity, but it has risen in amazement. Now get off Virtual Box and install this bad boy!
