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.

Been using Parted Magic for 9 years to transfer data from failing drives to working drives. Repaired data accidentally deleted. Discovered and removed malicious code from Microsoft boxes. Partitioned or repartitioned drives. Made bootable removable media images. Discovery of failing SMART drives. All with the ability to find information online concerning the above, with a web browser. All usage done loaded in memory or from partially loaded code. Running on the affected PC. I have no problem paying for Patrick Verner's work.

Just downloaded the new version. Love it. It just keeps getting better every release. I use this all day at work. At this price it's got to be the best value of any software I use.

Does not work as well as other versions on my aging amd64 pc. Its starts fine, slows down to a crawl with sshd, and when the screen comes up, it then takes an age to set itself up.

I contacted the forum. thats a joy to deal with. After having to wait for signin details,I posted the problem. I got a link back as way of an answer. But it did not deal with the problems i was having so I was able to this time write a reply that went something like 'I did not mention a black screen' . I also said something of needing to resign in to to got to the next page (had to resign three times). Since that point I have not been able to sign in at all. No explanation has been given, but it looks suspiciously like I have been deregistered in a weasel like way.

I will not bebuying another one.
