  • 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.

Probably one of only GNU distro's that works for my hardware. Really nice. PureBrowser is great too.

Testing out PureOS 8.0 Beta1 on VirtualBox 6.0. Initially, I was worried that the install failed, but it was just unusually slow during setup. My patience was rewarded because now bootup is very fast, and it is stable. I have not been able to make it crash and have not experienced any bugs. Of the GNU/Linux distros that are Free Software Foundation (Richard Stallman & Co.) endorsed, PureOS outshines the rest by a wide margin. Aesthetically, clean and crisp -- one of the prettier distributions I've seen, FSF endorsed or not. Importantly, it doesn't tax resources, typically using about 800MB of memory. While it's not as noob friendly as say LinuxMint, it does make it simple for all users, even true novices, to operate more securely, with prompts to encrypt the drive and a web browser set by default to use a trifecta of DuckDuckGo/HTTPS Everywhere/uBlock Origin. More significantly, it is the developers' commitment to follow the FSF Guidelines that gives teeth to the promise of paramount security and privacy. I don't believe there is a more secure OS available without going to a live OS (Tails) or something with significant hardware compatibility challenges (Xen/Qubes). Anyone who enjoys a vanilla Debian/Gnome setup will feel at home with PureOS, and I will be switching to this distro for daily use.
