The project's website claims to provide a rolling release distribution, but new packages are in fact just security patches, not new versions. The distribution also enables sudo access by default without requiring a password for user convenience.

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.

Just keeps improving. Tried for the first time a few months ago and it wasnt bad but also not impressive. Grabbed the current ISO and if it wasnt for the loading screen I wouldnt have known it was the same OS. Has improved leaps and bounds since my last install. Interested to see how it is in a few months.

Perfect for a desktop in the cloud. Performance was really good when launching a cloud instance inside a cloud instance. All the tools are built from source and are preconfigured so no setup is needed.
