Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • 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.

Works great out of the box! I am a returning Linux user, and am surprised by how hassle-free Linux has become. The few issues I've run into have been KDE/Wayland related, and were solved by updates in mere days. The community usually responds to help requests in the forums on the same day. I don't really have much more to add so I'm just padding the review at this point by saying that being able to use the Arch User Repository makes it really easy to use all of the programs I was used to using on windows. Its incredible how many games run flawlessly with the exception of those that use kernel-level anticheats, which is no fault of Artix's

The comodity of having the latest and greatest without the crufts of systemd. The only thing that couldn't do for everyone is about AUR being obviously used towards systemd since AUR is pointed to Arch but nothing prevents you to submit your own AUR version of the package you want with your init version of choice.
Not only that, it's the real deal about being K.I.S.S. since you can easily use whatever you want at your own discretion, without relying on things forced on your throat because the devs are lazy enough to deploy poorly configured packages.
Despite elogind being used system-wide by default, isn't hard to use something else such as seatd.

I have a month of use under my belt and I've been impressed by the stability and the freedom of choice.
I am firmly against systemd and it's system-wide ramifications choking off the traditional flexibility of GNU/Linux.
I also run Devuan for the same reasons, but thought I'd try something different for a change on my desktop since I'd been using Devuan since 2017.

I don't think Artix would be a great choice for a first time Linux user, however it isn't mind boggling to someone with a little prior experience, in fact the road to adoption is pretty well bump free.

I can see myself sticking with this distro for sometime, nothing has rubbed me the wrong way thus far.

Many thanks to the folks at Artix for keeping Linux, Linux.
