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.

v1.04 - quite interesting.
Ubuntu Artful based + KDE user/stable/unstable repos + 1 nitrux repo
Pacman CLI package manager, apt could be added and works, PPAs should be added manually in conf with key import
Nomad Desktop: nice graphics, very nice additional widgets (system tray, notifications, clock, networks and superb audio controls - works with mpd) for plasma, superb extension for included Chromium (download status, stop/stop multimedia and so on).

Whole snapd removal could be easily done if needed:
https://github.com/zyga/devtools/blob/master/reset-state
~6GB /lib/live/mount directory also could be removed so finally system takes only 4,5GB with a few basic additional packages.

Works nearly as quick as Neon, unfortunately starting very slowly.
1.05 could be really serious thing if improved!
