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.

Installed AMD64 on a 2 CPU HP Laptop with a dead display, and not working wifi. Encrypted the disk, and is up and running using an external display, USB keyboard, and USP mouse. Replaced the CMOS battery to keep time (important as incorrect time will cause web browsing errors). Must say the install was a snap, and desktop apps along with Abrowser a free version of Mozilla works quite well. Will be using this to take with me teaching using a projector for presentations. Performance is fine. Zoom call application was installed as Ubuntu package and functions normally.

I would have no problem using this on my other laptops as well. Like the fact that it is GNU.

I give this a solid thumbs up!

Trisquel is very stable, fast and free. What more could you want?
It is the best option for reliability and day-to-day work. It also starts and shuts down in a few seconds.
I am agree with previous reports that MATE has a good collection of usefull apps and not too much like other big desktop environments. It is the best option for reliability and day-to-day work. It also starts and shuts down in a few seconds.
I changed my wifi card of the laptop (Atheros didn't worked I replaced for an Intel wifi card from an old computer) and for me there is no reason to install non-free software again on my machines. Intel worked out-of-the-box.

I use Triqsuel 11 Mate on my laptop. It works absolutely stable. Even Fn-keys (Brightness, Sound etc.) work out of the box. Just having a free (as in freedom) Ubuntu. Trisquel is very mature and fast. I don't know about Wi-Fi, because I use a wired connection with Ethernet.
The default Abrowser is a debranded Firefox with a free add-on section and is on the same version like Firefox (currently 117). Icedove is the mail app and Libreoffice makes the small private office complete.
The Mate desktop has a good collection of usefull apps and not too much like other big desktop environments.

The installation was with full encryption and without any issues like expected. I use it for some time now and did not have one crash. I only use a free Linux for ethical reasons and the next step is to order a free laptop to install Trisquel there to have a complete free system (free as in freedom).

The linux-libre kernel prevents from accidentally installing non-free software. Currently installed is v. 5.15.0-79.
VPN is working fine and for testing other free linux, I installed Qemu/KVM, which works also very stable. For me there is no reason to install non-free software again on my machines. Free alternatives could be Parabola (Free Archlinux) or Guix System.
Trisquel is as easy as Ubuntu but free. Perfect.
