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.

This is a very poor representation of KDE Plasma.

KaOS has many many quirks, issues and troubles. Aside from that, there's just zero reason to leave a stable, reputable, well supported and funded distribution for actual production.

This is clearly something developed for the KaOS developers themselves and not for potential real world users.

No way, no how and no thanks!

KaOs is a linux system I do like very much, because it proved to be an outstanding
lightweight, clean, versatile and very stable operating system.
KaOs concentrates only on KDE-desktop. KDE-Plasma is the best desktop
environment in my opinion, and KaOs
makes it to an excellent user experience.
Being a rolling distro, KaOS performs updates one can rely on, KaOs is an operating
system, which I highly recommend.
The installation goes very easy, Calamares installer is used here.
The software coverage is very good, it can be extended by Flatpak as well.

Bad... bad Bad BAD!!!

This project is a train wreck. Starting with theming. The default layout is terrible. Attempting to achieve a normal KDE Plasma theme is challenging. Like mind boggling challenging. What have they done to it? It's not as simple as going into settings and selecting Breeze Dark for example. The panel is still stuck on the right hand side and it does NOT respect the full theming. It's a mix match of Breeze Dark/Light with bits you can't read due to white background with white lettering. Very bizarre.
Aesthetics aside, hardware and performance where another issue. After 3 days I reinstalled Kubuntu and everything was back to normal.
