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've been using this distribution since its beginning and i very much appreciate it. the maintainers do a very good job in stabilizing sid. and the only one time i ran into trouble in the past years (something imported during a big package transition in sid) people on the forum were very responsiv and helped quite fast. maybe it really is a little much for bloody beginners, but if somebody is willing to get into things a little: THIS IS THE RIGHT ONE.

Everything works out of the box -not using proprietary video drivers either. Outside of a wireless issue after an update that solved within minutes, it's been issue free since first install 50+ days ago.
