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.

J'ai téléchargé Voyager, utilisé Rufus pour faire une live Usb, démarré sur mon Lenovo G50-30. Tout mon matériel est bien détecté.
PROS:
Bonne sélection d'applications
Rapide et intuitive.
Je la conseille aux novices sur Linux.
Interface facile à configurer.
CONS
Consommation RAM semble élevée pour un bureau Xfce.(750Meg)
Le Terminal est trop transparent par défaut mais facilement changeable en fond noir)
Manque peut-être VLC et OPENSHOT
.
C'est une version en développement mais très stable.
Mon souhait: une version avec le bureau MATE.

Pros:

Works very well with my hardware

Beautiful interface

Installation was fast

Stable and fast with everyday use

Came with the majority of software I needed


Cons:

Should be much higher up on the Distrowatch list

None with this distribution that I can think of


Until a week ago I had never heard of Voyager. I installed Voyager 16.04.3 after using Bodhi Linux for a while and really thought I'd never switch from Bodhi for anything else but I was wrong. Voyager has a beautiful interface and works very well with my hardware (AMD FX 8350, MSI 970 Gaming, and Radeon R7 370). This is by far the best distribution I've ever installed out of dozens and dozens I've tried.
