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 "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages 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.

Solid, friendly experience with lots of multimedia applications. I'm running the Cinnamon desktop and I like how smooth the traditional layout is.

In my opinion, the best distro there if for those who want a slick, traditional desktop (I'm using Cinnamon) with an emphasis on stability. Mint regularly introduces welcome new features but it's evolutionary rather than revolutionary, so you can be sure you'll feel instantly at home with each new release.

I've never understood the popularity surrounding Mint, IMO it is overrated and can be quite a buggy experience. Other distros DO do it better and are a lot more stable.

If you are indeed "new" to Linux and want a stable and easy to use out-of-the-box experience, then go for Ubuntu GNOME or Xubuntu. Other distros like Peppermint, Antergos are also worth a mention if you want things to just work. I'd lean more towards Debian due to its stability and the fact that it forces you to learn a little more about how Linux works, there is extensive support and a vast Wiki.

Mint is an average distro.
