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 "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.

This is my go-to distro for the Raspberry Pi. I have run it on both a Pi2 and Pi3 for over a year. There are many options to choose from so that you can get it configured just how you want to; whether it is booting directly in to Kodi, LXDE, command line or installing Webmin or any number of optimised software options. It really is very easy to use, stable and provides tools to turn your Pi into whatever you want!

I am now running the latest version based on Debian Stretch. There are regular updates and an active community forum that gives me confidence that this is a distro that is well resourced.

Thanks

Never used Debian, but this looks awesome and is hassle free to flash with etcher for Odroid C2
