  • 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.

It simply works and suits my needs at work.
No single distribution could fulfill everything, but it serves me very well, if it were not compete, but close.

The term 'simple' does not necessarily means 'easy' :)
, the term 'complete' does not necessarily mean 'full of stuffs'
, any *auto*-pkg managing tool w/ frequent updates does not necessarily mean 'stable/usable' all the time(or 'less time' to maintain )

What I just want is 'stable' and 'dependable'.
Install and forget, let's make jobs done w/o any fuss.

Absolute deserves well, Long live forever!
