Ubuntu GNOME

Last Update: 2017-08-26 01:22 UTC


Ubuntu GNOME (formerly Ubuntu GNOME Remix) is an official flavor of Ubuntu, featuring the GNOME desktop environment. It is intended as a mostly pure GNOME desktop experience built from the Ubuntu repositories. As of mid-2017, the Ubuntu GNOME project no longer releases new versions. The main Ubuntu flavour defaults to using the GNOME desktop. Older Ubuntu GNOME releases are still maintained.

  • 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.

So far so good. No driver issues, no buggy processes, good Gnome experience. The only thing is that startup logo is not good looking. But after you see the desktop, everything is perfect.

Perfectly stable on 3 PCs, no crashes. The desktop design is pleasant, and it runs much better than Unity. Boots quickly on old hardware. Apt is much quicker than older Ubuntu releases.

And my wife likes it too.

I did try the distro a lot and I always tried to convince myself about it but here it is question of preferences.

Gnome extension offers a way to custom it but still it is not what I am looking for.
