Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view: Major packages only (52) All tracked packages (226)
  • 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.

Xubuntu 14.04 still holds up on an old Vista laptop of mine and eventually I will give in and go to a newer Distro, but not yet. Even being old(as computer tech ages), it still works great.

Not my computer, but I've also installed a newer version of Xubuntu on a family member's former Windows 10 laptop because that teenager agreed to every offer of free music if only he would accept their toolbars. These toolbars of course came with virus' and malware, more than you could ever imagine. Afterwards, he had constant memory and hard drive errors(crashes) which were due to his hardware being over used by those malicious programs. Heavy Operating Systems would not work due to the loads they put on his hardware and the owner did not have the money to repair the failed hardware or buy a new Windows license. I tried everything from Windows 7-10, Ubuntu and even Mint. The only way to get his computer working again was to install a very light operating system that did not require heavy resources. The hardware was damaged enough that those operating systems would not even install. When I tried Xubuntu, everything worked just because of the light load it puts on hardware. It's been close to 2 years and a laptop that would have been tossed in a closet is now used daily. Xubuntu was a no-brainer for the owner because without Xubuntu he would not have a working laptop. With his new found experiences with Xubuntu, I doubt he will return to Microsoft. The owner(a teenager) has learned the lesson of how he should not agree to let anybody upload 'their' seemingly harmless programs to his computer. "Thanks to Xubuntu he now has a laptop that works and is safe to operate."

Awesome lightweight distribution. I've been using it for the last decade.

The LTS-Versions are very stable and bugfree. The STS-Versions can have some issues at times. So don't use them, if you're not willing to invest some time to fix them.

As others have noted, problems with bugs that were never fixed, (Ubuntu). Installed it a few months ago and found python 2 file was corrupted. Rather than try to fix it and the other problems I just moved on to another distro. Tried it again recently, same bug on python 2 corrupted file and this has been reported to Ubuntu but never fixed either here or other distros of the Ubuntu flavors. With all the problems I found on Xubuntu I have no idea how they would rate a 9.0. The only pro of course is XFCE and it is light on resources. Perhaps if your willing to fix the bugs and problems it might work for you but I`ll stick with Mint, stable, fast with XFCE and a better support team.
