  • 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.

Heads is very light by default - lightweight DE, no bloatware, no pointless packages, just a means of privacy on the web, and it does that specific job well.

This is my replacement for Tails as Tails is very heavy/slow.

Good work, dev.

Run heads live and nice to keep on usb key chain, very fast and stable.

Guess this is Devuans version of Tails but a lot better!

Does what I want it to do so negative views on the distro!
