  • 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.

Best Distro i have ever came across it uses less ram memory and provides excellent service . It is based on Debian which is already stable with mx-16.1 it became rock solid. You should Try MX-16.1 at least one time.

I 've been running MX Linux for 2 months now and it is the best distro I came across in a while. It seems rocksolid, reliable, pleasant to look at, very functional with a top repository (synaptic).

It takes an XFCE distro to make korganizer (calendar of my choice) work, something that most and many KDE distros cannot achieve. MX Linux has NO problem with that. I like to congratulate and thank the compilers and developers for a job well done ! Please keep it up that way.
