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.

ExTix was not worth my time to install, very poor OS. Out-of-the-box Extix Linux is bit lacking in default applications. The bundled application do not include any office packages such as LibreOffice. Games and multimedia players are sorely absent. One of my major disappointments with ExTix is its inability to have an always-on Internet connection. I was unpleasantly surprised to discover that the ISO live session does not automatically connect to the host computer’s LAN connection. There are so many better choices. Just Bad!

Sorry, but this "OS" still is extremely bad.
Many things doesn't works in Extix and I also don't see the SENSE of this distro, either.
It's also slow and sometimes confusing and totally messed up. No meat and no fish, as we say over here.
Distros like Xubuntu, Debian, MX Linux and many others are doing right and good, but not Extix.
Infact, this is the problem of a "one man show". Again: they are many BETTER distros out there!
I have tried it several times, but I always had been disappointed....a waste of time.

My apology mate, I did try this in real PC. Installation is doing good but after the reboot it doesn't boot, it shows some kind of error. Further, after that error I switch to the bios configuration and sadly the usb stick with ventoy cannot be detected, it's quit unusual first time happen in my side. Keyring is looking for a password I yet we do not know the password. Nice work mate but over-all it needs to be tested and polish in this destro. See you in your next distro release mate, hopefully it would be more fine.
