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.

Seriously, I know the Xubuntu team is small, but they've missed some bugs that are just annoying, such as one with suspend and the screensaver! Apparently a bad interaction between the new XFCE4 version 16 and the lightdm and lightlocker and x-screensaver (c'mon just put sleep/suspend/lock in ONE location!) Plus, certain panel accessories no longer work (after I had finally made them work on previous versions... seriously you don't use a "notifier" to run what should be a standalone monitoring application.) Also, can't theme it the way I did in 18.04, as support for GTK2 is apparently missing, and GTK3 is way too complicated to deal with customizatons.
Most of the common themes I have used before don't work and don't have replacements! After using this for a week trying to make it work properly I got such bad crashes in common programs and when the display went wonky after a suspend, I'm back on 18.04, which I at least was finally able to tweak so it worked as well as 16.04 or 12.04 (which was probably the best but not up to modern standards.)
Common to Ubuntu, there is no 32-bit. Start looking elsewhere if you're wanting toinstall Xubuntu 20 plus on older hardware, those days are gone.

Xubuntu 20.10 has few big problems for me.
Firstly it is impossible to use MS Teams on Xubuntu 20.10 becouse that app is totally freezing PC. I had to remove it via Recovery Mode becouse I can not use PC at all ( Teams was added on startup automatically )
The same situation takes place when I want to play Ski Jump game in browser.
XFCE sometimes freezes for a second, what is a bit annoying
The next major problem is with my HP 3525 printer, which do not want to print on dedicated drivers installed via Printer settngs. Printer is not responding when I want to print something. Default drivers are a bit problematic. There are some problems with duplex, and printer is a bit slow in my opinion. I do not know if scanner is working out of the box becouse I did not tested that.

I went back to 20.04 and everything is working fine. I will stuck with 5.4 kernel for some time, becouse 5.8 is not stable enoguh for me, so Xbuntu 20.04.2 may be problematic too.

If you are looking for a stable yet fully functional linux os then just give xubuntu 20.04 a try.
Since i got less powered and old pc with x86 2 core 2 thread processor and recently upgraded ram to 4gb,
this desktop just flies. it requires not much of resources as well as memory to use.
Since i already used lubuntu 18.04 very well. i can say that xubuntu do have many thing that needs to be explored by new users.
every thing works fine out of the box. if you have already used linux distros then this could be something different and cool distro.
the drawbacks includes:
1. You need to install softwares for web cam, usb writer, and basic stuff
2. You cannot be able to get satisfied user experience when it comes to using kde-type of applications

Conclusion: While there are other distributions which implements xfce in much more attractive manner such as linux mint xfce, manjaro xfce, mx-linux and others. But XUBUNTU has its own beauty and taste such as its stability and simplistic look which remains mostly same over the years, which not many people can understand.
