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 stable core of ChromeOS. Install once and forget.
No android, but a stable crostini-linux.
Virtualbox works.

For users that mainly consume online media and browse the web it is ideal.
it is also ideal for allowing guests on their own accounts.

For enthusiasts/power-users it is ideal if you mainly like doing things that are possible in Crostini Linux. If you are heavy into MS-Office use and / or DAW or Video-editing it is not really for you. Neither is gaming.

Cloudready allowed me to replace Windows because I can use WPS-office and Libreoffice, Musescore, Audacity and some other tools.

Time spent on updating in a year: a couple of re-boots of 15 secs each.
Time spent on updating anti-virus, removing pups, scanning. 0 secs.
With U2F and encrypted data I am much less concerned about loss or theft.

Home version perfect for an older ASUS E402S netbook with a 32 GB eMMC card, which couldn't handle Windows 10. Even with a lightweight browser, it was a dog. The primary use for this netbook is education, specifically using a browser to access learning materials on websites. For that purpose, it's perfect.
Pros: Extremely lightweight but looks polished
Everything works out of the box; all hardware supported, wi-fi, bluetooth, touchpad, etc.
Boot up and shutdown only takes a few seconds

Cons: Lengthy procedure to download and install to a USB - complained about my SanDisk
Neutered ChromeOS - no apps and no way to install anything other than a few Chromium browser extensioons
Linux subsystem is in beta and not yet very functional

If you have an underpowered laptop or netbook and just need access to the web / do some light office type stuff in G Suite apps, then CloudReady is a solid choice.
