Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view: Major packages only (52) All tracked packages (226)
  • 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.

Very very good distros! You can use gentoo repository as well. Everything out of the box. It´s rolling distro. There are Desktop and Server distros. I recommend use it for work(small company) and home due stability and simplicity.

Very good distro! Stable and you can use gentoo repository as well. Everything out of the box. It´s rolling distro. All DE has the same layout. You can use MATE, Plasma, Cinnamon and xfce, but all has the same layout with a top bar and a dock at bottom. I recommend use the xfce due stability and simplicity.

Duas palavras: Muito obrigado! Isso é para os desenvolvedores dessa distro.
Eu testei muitas distros para ver se alguma atendia minhas necessidades 'out of the box'. Algumas atenderam minhas necessidades, mas com problemas. Algumas com problemas gráficos, outras com muitas quebras de pacotes. Muitas com pacotes muito antigos e outras com muito novos e instáveis. Não tenho medo da linha de comando, mas facilidade é uma coisa boa nos dias de hoje. Muitas demoram para atualizar ou corrigir problemas óbvios. Já outras atualizam alguma coisa em alguns dias por semana. Isso é chato quando se procura algo atualizado, mas estável. Eu não quero trabalhar 'no' computador; quero trabalhar 'com' o computador. Ele é minha ferramenta não meu "paciente hospitalar".

Sempre quis testar o Gentoo e testei em livedvd, mas instalar o gentoo é algo que demanda muito tempo da minha rotina. Calculate Linux atendeu minhas necessidades no ato nesse quesito e em outros. Recomendo essa distro por muitos motivos. Abradeço por ser livre do systemD, escolher alsa ou pulse audio, KDE, XFCE e outros, ser rolling release com inteligencia do que e quando atualizar. Um central de configuração em GUI semelhante ao Yast, por exemplo.

Só reclamo da falta de Mirror no meu país e da falta de divulgação por aqui. Tirando isso, Calculate Linux é excelente para tarefas do dia a dia e se pode encontrar praticamente tudo nos repositórios.
