Table Notes and Explanations
  • 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.

Slow. Nice installer, but once installed, it's slow to boot, slow to run, slow to update, just seems to do EVERYTHING slower than other distro's such as Arch or Fedora. Can't really recommend it for anyone for any reason.

Super fast, easy enough to use to give it to my neighbors, still powerful enough for developers.

Very innovative, first distribution in the world to use clang as its main compiler.

The community on #openmandriva-cooker irc is very helpful with any problem.
