  • 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.

Good documentation. Great performance. Super support forum. Of the Linux distributions that have been around for 4.5 years or less, and are not sponsored by Canonical, Linux Lite is #1.

Perfect.
The only one distro that runs on Fujitsu-Siemens Esprimo Mobile V5505 with no problems.
