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.

Amazing distro, as least for newbies like me. I tested Elementary OS before and even though I liked it, I prefer Pearl Linux OS

I like the look and feel of the OS after installing it. Installing a printer was a little challenging but a good learning experience for me. Otherwise I have been using it as my main OS for three weeks now and love the feel and character of an OS that is similar in looks to the older OS X Aqua based interface. Keep up the good work!
