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.

Reborn OS (16 April 2024)

When I heard how "fast" it was I immediately got a copy and installed it.Standard XFCE desktop. First order of business, update. That kept failing & cashing and hanging the whole system. OK I thought, new download and install. same crap, so I tried a third time and guess what... It wasn't the charm. I doubled the amount of RAM and still the same. I did appreciate the boot messages scrolling past slow enough to read, unlike other arch distro's where they zip past so fast, they may not have been there at all.

PRO'S:

Nice clean desktop.

Cons:

Unstable, hangs for no reason, updater will just bomb out running "post installation hooks".
If the update bombs on the kernel, system is un-bootable, no rescue.


For me the question was, what did it bring to the table that say, Manjaro or Arco did not?
That answer was nothing, and while I am glad to see new Linux distro's, this ticked no boxes for me.

This is a sadly under-rated distro. Its cousin EndeavorOS ranks is the top 10. They do much the same but in repeated testing and using them for any length of time, THIS one, RebornOS is the winner for me.

Pros - flexible as you can choose from a dozen desktops at install. Once installed you have all the goodness of Arch at your fingertips. It is easy to customise, making it a home not just a house - best I can explain it. So many other distros lock you to some look-n-feel with things breaking if you change. Not the case here - stable and very useable. It also starts up and shuts down very quickly. Exhaustive tests on the exact same hardware showed it 8x faster than the "big" release of a very well known distro. So guess which one is going to stay on my machine ..RebornOS of course.

Cons - not enough people seems to know about this distro.

I installed Version 2023.10.23 over a month ago. The installation process was super-easy. I really like that they made it simple for me to pick-and-choose exactly what components I what installed. I don't need an extremely customized system. I just don't want any bloat. I found RebornOS is definitely light and fast. Also, I only use the command line when I absolutely have to...I'm a simple GUI person...and I am using RebornOS as my daily driver. That should tell you something. 10 out of 10 for me. I would definitely recommend RebornOS for those interested in an Arch-based distro.
