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.

When booting the Live USB in UEFI mode you get 2 choices Russian or English.
Works great, fast. But of course if you try to install it will be in EFI mode
and that is a problem if you have any other systems running in BIOS mode.
Reboot into BIOS mode and the Grub is in Russian, as is Runtu.
Not a problem since everything is in the same place as it is in XUBUNTU.
Once in install, change the language and all is good.
Except even though it saw my WiFi adapter and connected it would not let me pick
Install Updates during Installation.
After install it had a bit of a problem with my second display.
Other than that, this is XUBUNTU, no more, no less.
I'll leave it and play with it a bit. Like any XFCE it is extremely fast.
Give it a try, just because.
