  • 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.

Well, I installed 1.07, I noticed a lot of missing apps, I understand they want to keep slim, but some necessities shoul be included, such as: a email client, could it be kmail, or thunderbird or geary, claws maybe, but NO email client, I made a lot of cjanches and additions, and now I have a nice looking working system.
I have installed synaptic, and apt, is not that I dont like pacman, but on this distro seems to be out of place, maybe in kaos, or manjaro with the addition of octopi, but not in nitrux.
Its fast and responsive, it uses some resources, but is nothing out of this world, there are many resources hangry desktops out there, I really like it, and remember is al version 1.07, so, there is a lot of space to improve it. definetly a winner, good work.

v1.04 - quite interesting.
Ubuntu Artful based + KDE user/stable/unstable repos + 1 nitrux repo
Pacman CLI package manager, apt could be added and works, PPAs should be added manually in conf with key import
Nomad Desktop: nice graphics, very nice additional widgets (system tray, notifications, clock, networks and superb audio controls - works with mpd) for plasma, superb extension for included Chromium (download status, stop/stop multimedia and so on).

Whole snapd removal could be easily done if needed:
~6GB /lib/live/mount directory also could be removed so finally system takes only 4,5GB with a few basic additional packages.

Works nearly as quick as Neon, unfortunately starting very slowly.
1.05 could be really serious thing if improved!
