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.

I like this version. I participated in the beta testing for 20.04, and had no issues. I like the XFCE integration and find it to be light on resource utilization. It is a solid performer without flashy features - exactly what I look for. You can find flashier distros, and you can also find lighter weight ones. But I don't think any have easier installation or better reliability than Xubuntu. It's my main distro on an HP All-in-one desktop (~7 years old, 12GB ram), as well as a small Lenovo celeron laptop (~2 years old but only 4GB ram). I think it would work well on even smaller setups than this based on its typical ram use in web browsing mode.

So, the 20.04 release of xubuntu is complete clean and really fast on my Asus Vivobook 5. Everything worked out of the box. Nothing to complain about this distro. Definitely, it is now my daily driver.
