Oracle Enterprise Linux missing from the picture
Since last year there is another Linux distribution: Oracle Enterprise Linux, based on Red Hat. Now they started with Oracle Enterprise Linux 4, and have released for few week already Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.
Sorting the table "Package Management and Installation"
When I order the table "Package Management and Installation" by the column "Approximate number of pre-compiled packages", the sorting is alphabetical, not numeric. Thus, here are the first seven entries, in the order they appear: 875 8300 8280 8000 80 610 6000
It would be nice to sort numerically.
Other than that, this whole page has lots of wonderful information. Thank you.
Endorsed by FSF?
The page "List of Linux distributions endorsed by the Free Software Foundation" redirects to this page, but there is no information about such endorsements here. What's up with that? Dylan Thurston (talk) 20:04, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
- All of that text was recently removed without explanation - I've restored it. Greenman (talk) 20:53, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
Additional information in table - e.g. lightweight?
KNOWING that Arch Linux runs on tiny devices (e.g. PogoPlug), and that XUbuntu is a lightweight version of Ubuntu, I was surprised to find the table did not indicate this kind of very useful -- in selecting a distribution -- information. WardXmodem (talk) 03:00, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
