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.

Cloudready installed on 2 Laptops, older HP Compaq Presario AMD chip,250gb hard drive and also on 2 year old ACER Aspire E5-571-332k, Intel i3 chip, 1tb hard drive.All buttons and keys work fine. Have also installed PCLinuxOS Mate onto a 64 GB SanDisk USB and Linux Mint18lts onto another 64 GB SanDisk USB. At boot up press
F12 key and select either Cloudready or USB and you have the choice of browser only cloudready or Linux OS for more intensive,photo,video etc usage....This gives you the best of both worlds...Have also installed REDO Backup software onto a 4gb flash drive.Using REDO backup,I can make a full image backup up of either the Linux USB's or Cloudready to a separate hard drive...Regular image backups mean that, if any problems arise,using REDO Backup/restore option,you can reinstall either cloudready or Linux,back to a fully functioning OS and also save any/all data.

I keep this on a flash drive so I can boot up my corporate HP laptop as a personal "Chromebook" when on business trips. Persistence feature makes it as easy to use as my actual Chromebook that I leave at home. Makes it easy to separate my work & personal computing using only one machine when traveling.
