GoboLinux

Last Update: 2018-03-24 02:02 UTC


GoboLinux is a modular Linux distribution - it organizes the programs in a new, logical way. Instead of having parts of a program thrown at /usr/bin, other parts at /etc and yet more parts thrown at /usr/share/something/or/another, each program gets its own directory tree, keeping them all neatly separated and allowing the user to see everything that's installed in the system and which files belong to which programs in a simple and obvious way.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 234 (32), 6 months: 235 (30), 3 months: 221 (32), 4 weeks: 201 (34), 1 week: 197 (36)

Average visitor rating: 5.6/10 from 5 review(s).

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.

Menus feature tiny fonts with low contrast, unreadable to all but the 20/20 crowd. Same with editors. Ctrl+Alt+F2 virtual terminal's framebuffer has about 250 chars/line, 80 lines/screen, so it's unreadable to all but the 20/20 crowd. If only I could read it, I could configure fonts to make it readable. Repeated requests for improvement met at first with inaction, then with hostility.

If your vision is 20/20 and you appreciate a distro made exclusively for people with your level of vision, this distro might be adequate. Otherwise, it's worthless.
