  • 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 "plasma-desktop" package 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.

Without question, this is definetly my all time favorite independent Linux distro. It has everything I need from a totally minimalist desktop. I love JWM, and the way this distro looks is beautiful. This distro is very fast. Has up to date Kernal, up to date Firefox (available), the newest version of Libreoffice (available), and very old, but playable games. No package manager, but has lots of software through the extensions, and it installs in less than 2 minutes. The website isn't the best, but it's informative, and lets you know what to do.

Needs build tools included.

ie: DKMS ,build-essential ,make ,e.tc.

Yet another distro with no way of building my wifi driver from the rtl88x2bu.zip file i have.


Oh well ,apart from that , a nice looking small relase that seems to run well on low power machines.

Didn't spend much time with it due to no internet.

Great little distro.

It looks good if though it's a very small OS.



Though most of the programs are shortcuts that require downloading if you want to use them.
A good way to limit the size and only install the things you really need.
So the size will increase once you start installing some of the things in your start menu.
Still ,i like it.

Proves you can still do a nice looking desktop while keeping the size small.
