DistroWatch.com: Maui Linux

Maui Linux

Last Update: 2017-03-05 03:50 UTC


Maui Linux is a desktop Linux distribution based on KDE neon and featuring KDE's Plasma desktop. It was created in August 2016 as a continuation of Netrunner's Kubuntu-based "Desktop" edition, but it was re-based on KDE neon which is a more cutting-edge project with frequent updates and a semi-rolling release model. Besides providing a KDE-centric distribution with many popular KDE packages included on the live DVD, the project also focuses on integrating non-KDE software, such as Firefox, Thunderbird or VLC with the underlying infrastructure of the Plasma desktop.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 89 (154), 6 months: 53 (237), 3 months: 61 (216), 4 weeks: 72 (178), 1 week: 66 (193)

Average visitor rating: 9.64/10 from 11 review(s).

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.

Fantastic user experience,
Fluide and extremly reliable.
I love the possibilty to choose the risk level in updates (from MInt). It's "Mint" for Plasma desktop.
Everything works properly.
0 problems experienced until now.
Cons: I don't like the default aesthetics.

MAUI Linux combines stability , velocity, aesthetics, seriousness and leadership !
Both Firefox and Chromium browsers are coming with full KDE/Plasma integration !
Traditional Gnome applications (like Gimp etc) are running fine as the newest KDE one.
Virtual Box is running fine too.
As a semi-rolling OS has updates but .... any update is checked by the MAUI team before being given to the users !!!!!!
Best Regards (by a simple user...) !!

Very stable, clean and pretty. Before Maui, I was almost ready to abandon KDE. Very usable and no need for too much fiddling like my prior Linux experiences.
Forum is very helpful. But there is no wiki, so you have to dig around in ubuntu or KDE sites to search for your own solutions which would apply to Maui.
