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.

In my Gigabyte Aero 14 works fine. It is a fast, stable and beautiful distro, and as is based on ubuntu the compatibility is the best. I can't wait to see the next release based on LTS.

I had a Mac on loan recently. I liked it, but I will not buy it. I use Ubuntu on my PC at home, but I wanted to switch after the Mac, to try something new again. I tried 5 other distros until I found an article about Pop_OS and I fell in love with it's appearance. Then everything else. :D
