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 "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.

They did a good job with MATE. Lots of detail. Trisquel is really easy to use. It's the Ubuntu of the FSF-approved world. Abrowser is configured for privacy first, and it feels like Tor Browser, except that this is based on Firefox Quantum instead of ESR. At install, full disk encryption is selected by default. The password prompt at boot shows the full lenght of my long password as I type, unlike many other Plymouth themes.

I'm very impressed with the level of detail that was put on this distribution. Last I heard, this is the one Richard Stallman uses, but with LXDE.

I really wanted to embrace the FOSS ethos of GNU/Linux, so I gave this a go. My wifi didn't work and the graphics looked 'choppy' when scrolling, I had to stick the Debian non-free backport repo in to get my machine working perfectly, but then I figured that that destroyed the whole point of the exercise, so stuck Arch back on :(
