DistroWatch.com: Mageia

Mageia

Last Update: Thursday 24 April 2014 15:21 GMT


Mageia is a fork of Mandriva Linux formed in September 2010 by former employees and contributors to the popular French Linux distribution. Unlike Mandriva, which is a commercial entity, the Mageia project is a community project and a non-profit organisation whose goal is to develop a free Linux-based operating system.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 4 (1,532), 6 months: 4 (1,520), 3 months: 4 (1,381), 4 weeks: 8 (1,214), 1 week: 14 (1,236)

Ubuntu Unleashed 2014 Edition: Covering 13.10 and 14.04



Table Notes and Explanations
  • Select view: Major packages only (52) All tracked packages (217)
  • 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" package 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.
