  • 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.

The new ISO came out, so now everyone can install Artix with ease! I've been meaning to do a re-install on my laptop for a long while now, I'm very happy this has been released!

The artix team have assisted me greatly in all the problems I encounter on their OS, it might take them a day or two to get back to me but they always do, I think they developers are currently busy with making Artix software repositories so Artix will no longer use a few Arch repositories if I'm not mistaken.

Artix Linux is simply amazing, I wish it was available for more architectures... Maybe one day we can make that possible! I really do hope everyone gives Artix Linux a shot!

Best Arch variant there is! One of the best Linux distros out there! The developers are working really hard on the software repositories, Artix has a very bright future & I recommend this distro to EVERYONE!

(Not sure what version I'm using by now because we're on a rolling release but it's forcing me to choose one)

OS: Artix x86_64
Kernel: 4.9.70-1-lts
DE: Cinnamon 3.6.7
CPU: Intel i7-3632QM (8) @ 3.200GHz
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7500M/7600M Series
Memory: 6607MiB / 15924MiB

10/10 so far. Have it installed on both an old Vaio and on a Dell Precision 7500 without a hitch so far. EFI, Encrypted LVM, Nvidia drivers & no issues or song and dances to get everything running. Haven't tried getting the ATI/Intel switchable graphics working on the Vaio but the Intel drivers are working well enough at the moment. Had an issue at first because I was using an old ISO that still had the sourceforge repos but once I figured that out it was all smooth sailing.
