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.

Coming back to Linux after a long time, tried Manjaro KDE but it does not have the packages I need like Makehuman and Blender 2.8, there was in AUR but the install was unsuccessful.
Kubuntu was like a breeze, all applications installed without any issue. Its very fast and very stable.
Not had a single freeze till now, all video / audio files that I threw at the system worked fine.
I'm connected by an ethernet cable, but my Canon Wireless Printer was found and configured.
I have not tested it from a hacker's point of view but for a normal user or a Graphics/ Video creator; Kubuntu is an excellent distribution.

Hice la prueba de ver que tanta memoria ram usaba al abrir una gran cantidad de aplicaciones y en verdad es sorprendente realmente no subió más de 1.6 mb cosa que no sucede por ejemplo en Ubuntu budgie, zorin que realmente consumen mucha ram, la que se acerca un poco al desempeño de kubuntu es linux mint, pero la verdad no la alcanza, ya que consume más casi 1.8 mb o más y aún cuando cierro aplicaciones el uso de ram disminuye muy poco a poco, en kubuntu las aplicaciones corren muy rapido y es muy estable, no entiendo por que es tan menospreciada, realmente esta distro es excelente y la recomiendo ampliamente, más que kde neon, que es algo inestable y se tiene que configurar casi todo. En kubuntu la verdad no hay necesidad de configurar casi nada, sólo descargar aplicaciones que nos falten y lito, excelente.

Blooming marvellous

The Ubuntu base provides stability, ease of installation, and compatibility with a wide range of software.

The KDE desktop is constantly being refined and improving its user experience - would not consider any other desktop than Plasma 5 now.

And then the Kubuntu team sprinkle their magic. Well chosen KDE defaults, and a useful mininal installation option which removes all the application bloat and lets you just add the stuff you want.

But best of all is the work put into the Backports PPA. KDE Plasma 5.16.3 and KDE Applications 19.04.2 were both released this week. 5.16.3 was in the Backports PPA the next day, and 19.0.2 the same day. This is quicker than most rolling distros, and cause no stability problems. KDE Frameworks is also at the latest version (5.59).

With judicious use of a few extra PPAs, you can get virtually all the software installed to the latest release.

If your looking for a KDE distro, you absolutely should give Kubuntu a try.
