  • 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.

I've been using Kubuntu Linux since 2007. For me, each new release has been better than the one before it. For me, Kubuntu 16.10 does everything I want from it without any issues. I keep a very clean system, and do not install applications that don't come from the established repositories, or from unknown/untrusted PPA's. I updae the package cache every time I boot up followed immediately by a dist-upgrade. This ensures that my system is always up to date and current. I like Kubuntu Linux a lot.
