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.

I'm a huge fan of OpenBSD as my router OS, and would normally give full marks. However, there's a problem with the inteldrm Intel video driver in the 6.2 release, which locks up the screen half way through the boot process. I had to jump through some hoops to get v6.2 to install properly (whereas all previous versions have installed on the same hardware without a hitch). Hopefully this gets resolved soon. OpenBSD is a great command line unix OS, once you get past the installation.

With the new Intel DRM code, my 2 year old Toshiba laptop can now be used for OpenBSD. It runs perfectly and packages include a current version of GNOME.

Still there is some issue with the Intel DRM code when using hibernate. And shutdown/halt gives a debug screen, after shutting down daemons and making sure the discs are unmounted.

Advanced but simple Unix-like OS built for security and bullet-proof servers but could be used for everyday desktop nicely. Consistrancy, simplicity, security-orieanted and MAnual pages all makes this the best Unix-like OS out there.
