Porteus

Last Update: 2018-03-24 02:03 UTC


Porteus is a fast, portable and modular live CD/USB medium based on Slackware Linux. The distribution started as a community remix of Slax, another Slackware-based live CD, with KDE 3 as the default desktop for the i486 edition and a stripped-down KDE 4 as the desktop environment for the x86_64 flavour. The lightweight LXDE is available as an alternative desktop environment.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 94 (131), 6 months: 82 (149), 3 months: 61 (190), 4 weeks: 100 (113), 1 week: 97 (109)

Average visitor rating: 7.31/10 from 13 review(s).

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.

Porteus has always impressed me.

I look forward to the Openbox fronted final version of 4.0.

Excellent distribution, fast, lightweight, eye candy, easy to install to an USB in just few minutes by copying files from the using and running a script included. Works well on my older hardware (8 years notebook), booting fast.

I have tried an USB install of 4.0-RC4 (my preference is LXQT, fastest, light and most practical, yet beautiful in Porteus). Some comments for improvement (understanding it isn't a final release yet):
-KDE and LXQT versions are the only I could boot to RAM (on my PC!). For the others I get an error that OS can't be found and I shall copy files to disk C:... Strange, as I boot from E: USB as per instructions. I am able to boot other versions if not picking option "to RAM".
-KDE version is very eye candy and polished. Runs slower than others (at list on my PC).
-Openbox version appears yet only to have a standard short OB menu with no other apps installed.

Well done, waiting for 4.0 release!
