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.

Still seems to have bugs galore, despite being updated daily. Nemo file manager randomly hides hard drives (not visible in window). Reboot and hey presto the drive is back again. Cinammon desktop still crashes quite regularly after a few hours use.

Seems to happen a lot quicker if I am using Nemo for renaming / moving lots of files around. Desktop locks up and I get the usual error saying it has crashed and will restart.

19.3 had a few bugs but 20 seems even worse or maybe it just doesn't like my PC? I've noticed programs are also taking longer to launch than in 19.3, particularly Audacity and GIMP.

I'm running on an i7-3770 CPU, 16GB RAM, 180GB SSD for OS with a couple of extra drives for data storage.

still have issues with accessing mounted drives, video display issues and the base Ubuntu crapshoot. cinnamon is resource hog as well.. stuck with systemd, so cookie cutter these days.. and bloatware is sneaking in now too
