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.

best in security since years.
I use Open BSD since 2006 for server and personal use and it is great!
Little different from Linux, but solid, straight edge, and secure.
Best choice for me.

I installed in VBox without a hitch.

The documentation is excellent. There's an introductory email (root and initial user, both) to help get started. This email emphasizes the use of the man pages. Follow their advice and you'll be up and running in no time.

I'm grateful to systemd (my distaste for it, that is) for finding OpenBSD. I'm running PCLinuxOS without systemd now (with OpenBSD in VBox, as I noted) but I can see where the day may come when I leave Linux behind.

No cons that I've discovered so far.

What a solid, pleasant, and secure distribution! Thank you!

OpenBSD has always been my go-to distribution.
Making good progress on the ARM architectures nowadays, too.
