  • 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.

Best linux version for beginners - hands down! Sleek, light, and quick. If you ever used a computer, you will have no problems with PeppermintOS. The Developers have really outdone themselves. They have provided a beautiful base that you 'the user' can build upon. You choose the apps you want, the browser you like; all, without having to uninstall a bunch of stuff you'll never use, or even want.

Tried 28 different distros on bare metal within about 30 days.

Peppermint OS 7 was the best in terms of a Windows 7 like experience.

Fast, stable, simple, functional, and a high degree of fit, finish, and polish.

1 year as my daily driver, and I have never loved my computer so much.
