  • 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.

I really like this small distro, seems to be very powerful with HA cluster and Replication enabled.
I like the way you can configure almost every aspect of the system with the 'options' command

Giving it a 9 because it doesn't have a graphical UI and the devs mentioned they won't build one.

Even so, it's still great.

Easy setup of iSCSI LUNs mapped to our ESXi cluster. Also, using smb shares and integrated AD support was simple to setup.
