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.

I've tested the top 10 on Distrowatch's page hit ranking. Spent plenty of time with each one, a couple of weeks or better. Really got acquainted with what each distro has to offer. For those moving from Windows, by far the best option, IMHO, is right here - Linux Mint.

It's simply 'complete' right out of the box. Simple to use, highly polished, fully functional, everything 'just works' - suddenly Linux on the desktop makes perfect sense. After a short time getting used to all it offers, you'll find yourself wondering what took you so long to make the move to Mint.

Don't take my word for it. Give it a go yourself and you'll see!

Let me preface by saying I started out my Linux experience with Mandrake Linux 8.0 Power Pack in 2001 and used it thorughout the Mandriva and Mageia marque. I switched to Mint Linux in 2012, initially with version 13. Mint is loaded on my primary office computer, my business computer, my wife's computer, my laptops, my kids and grand kids computers and I've set it up on about 30 other peoples computers with no complaints. It just works and keeps getting better throughout the updates. My only complaint pertains to my rather elderly 8 year old primary office computer and it seems to have something to do with Compiz effects. Starting with the Mint 18 update, after a week to 10 days of uptime, when opening an application it will result in an invisible window. All I get is a border that I can see the desktop wallpaper through and if I'm lucky the menu bar at the top. No amount of closing and reopening fixes it. I generally reboot at this point and I'm good for another week or so. I have not experienced this on any of my other systems and they're all set up the same. Might be an excuse to put together a new system, which I'll load Mint Linux on.

My number one Linux distro to replace Windows. I spent years working in RHEL and now CentOS for work purposes. I had a Windows 10 laptop that ran so poorly I almost gave it away. I decided to installed CentOS and used it on and off for a year. I tested the latest Mint on VirtualBox and liked it so much I wanted to see it work on my laptop. After installing Mint, I love using the laptop again and feel it made the slightly under powered machine useful again. I recently read some reviews saying the developers were getting a little down and maybe burned out. I just wanted to say keep up the good work, anyone using this os first time can tell you its so user friendly and at the same time very powerful. Keep it up.
