  • 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.

Last try was Manjaro and I wasn`t impressed.
Now I am using SwagArch as my main daily distro and I am very impressed.
Very good work and it is the best way to use Arch Linux!

After trying several times Antergos and Manjaro I've never expected any Arch distro to be stable, trouble free and reliable.
Untill I've tried SwagArch. Everything works like a charm starting from the very installation, man, what a difference compared to so recognized Manjaro! Great distro, I'm so happy to be able to use my nVidia card fully in latest Blender, hardly possible elsewhere.
Highly recommended!
