  • 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.

This distribution is solid, clean, and a dream to use. It has a very beautiful and satisfying desktop environment. I put it on an old machine and it ran smooth a good majority of the time and held a hefty amount of apps up ( excluding chrome, yeesh) without blowing out my CPU. I will keep this distribution in my arsenal of prime distributions that I wont only will use, but I will recommend to others. The install was quite painless, and it's Debian ancestry is actually quite nice. I would use this distribution to dress up an old system to make it look pretty, and make your friends question if you have a Hackintosh.

My complaints go toward constructive developments only: (This distro is bloody excellent)
Some functions for some reason bring my machine to a stand still, and run my CPU hot; the workspace icon in the top left being one of these odd triggers. Sometimes my monitor seems attacked by the pop outs on the edge of the screen, which I understand is fully customizable.

We have a lot to thank the French for, and Voyager is one of them!

Sorry but this wouldn't even load the live DVD. Tried 3 times but it wouldn't load past the first screen.

Warnings of "kernel panic attempted to kill install".

So I hope it works better for you.

Way under rated. The interface and the attention to detail in the UI are fantastic. Should be close to top of Distrowatch list. Check it out.
