  • 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 was never a KDE fan until now! This is a very solid distro, no bloatware, low on memory, super fast and slick.

The more I use KDE Neon the more I wish other distros were like it. Minimal software pre-installed so it is easily customized and built on an LTS base so I can continue to use it for years with just updates. The only negative I can think of is the Discover package manager but it certainly gets better with each updated release. I recommend KDE Neon User Edition to everyone looking for a stable base but wanting the latest KDE desktop and packages.
