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.

I use the distribution siduction for years and am very satisfied with the functionality of the offered spins. Particularly noteworthy is the distribution's own cutting-edge kernel, which is also integrated a few days after official appearance on kernel.org here at siduction.

I was surprised how easy the distro "handled". It was a breeze putting her into memory and it was even easier still to install it to the hard drive. No messy questions about what size hd one has or wants. It liked the entire disk I gave her and "Bob's your uncle" :))

There is a very comprehensive selection of software pre-installed and if you want more there is "Synaptic Package Manager" to get it from.

The distro I'm talking about is the LXDE flavour - simply marvellous. Although it says it's "unstable" - I found it Very ( with a capital V) stable indeed. I loaded many programs into the installed system, such as "gnome-commander" without which I cannot live, "orage" calendar, otherwise I don't know what date it is and yeah - now it's a top desktop for everyday use, work and play !! The speed of the distro is surprising even the normally sluggish FireFox is behaving himself.

Top work fellows, and please keep it up and going - just like that :))

If you want the latest software in a Debian distro, you should like Siduction.

Not so much a beginner's distro but it has not failed me.

I like it a lot.
