  • 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 "plasma-desktop" package 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.

Advantages:

-very lightweight, CPU works quietly, that's what I like the most

-Debian repository so you have a software of good quality

-great look, maybe the best Plasma look out there

Cons:

-you must enbale Deboan repository otherwise you will hardly receive any updates,
it should be enabled by default, I think

I can't see more cons, It's an interesting project. It looks and works better than predecessors.
Recommended.

Easy to install, used only 526mbs at GUI. Full screen menu is amazing with room for many favorites and a search bar. If you have vision issues youll love this menu design, but if you prefer the more classic menus they are still available.
Comes default with Firefox and Thunderbird my preferences but adding more apps with Synaptic is very easy(no software store apps).

Excellent stability and performance all built on Debian 9.

Excellent choice of apps and I didnt have to install very many nor have to make huge changes to get up and running. Codecs are included and they also have Steam for gamers. Its a great OS that offers a lot to users out of the box and if youre looking for a change from the standard KDE, take a look.

Recommended to users of all types.

I use 17.01 Core, is very light, CPU works quietly.
A Debian repo has to be added in to receive updates.
It look very good, it's a really outstanding Plasma version.
It works nice without flaws and bugs.
