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 "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages 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.

Wonderful distro all up. I found it to be quite fast, plain - without schnickschnack - and logically put together. I found the repository still a bit lean, but sufficient for most puposes......

Development seems to have stopped, therefore this may no longer be an active distro. The Backport repos are not compatible with the Debian base as they claim, and have not been updated since early December 2017.
