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.

I love this distro. I used it a long time ago when it first came out. It has worked flawlessly since I installed it and given me no problems. I had a bit of difficulty installing it. I wanted to install it alongside another distro and no matter how hard I tried I could not figure out how to do it. So, I had it do an erase and install and it worked. I use fxce and it is doing well and has all the programs I need and use so I am not complaining. It is also has a nice modern clean look. I love it.

Great distro. Works fine here. very fast, simple to use. Very, very stable. Works with gentoo repository as well. All the applications that I need I can install easily. I recomend this distro for anyone. I use as my main O.S with KDE. What you waiting for? Download now and be happy!
