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.

Using it for years, from usb stick. Very friendly and safe system, doing everything surfing, editing, copying, watching netflix, youtube, writing this review. No worms, viruses etc. Many thanks to folks behind this system, excellent project, love it.

firefox keeps crashing the system here. The simplicity concept seems not all that powerful.

Very fast lean system that simply works as live disk or flash/hdd installation. Firefox and VLC are snappy. But last version I had verified to work was April 2016 and development appears to have halted.
