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.

I have used first Puppy Linux and then EasyOS over several years and love the simplicity and small size of the distributions. I had trouble installing the latest Firefox but the one provided works well and I run EasyOS on a ten year old netbook and off a USB stick. Barry has a lot of helpful guides and information on the EasyOS website and I highly recommend trying out EasyOS if you are looking to get away from proprietary (malicious!) software.

Hmm... The fact that I couldn't find an out-of-the box WiFI/WLAN section (as it was provided with the previous version 2.2 terminated my interest in this version immediately.
