    Differences Between Editions
    Submitted By: admin Date: August 16, 2013, 06:25:14 PM Views: 3031

    The base edition provides the arch core, some useful system services (e.g. ssh, proftpd), a basic KDE installation with some pieces removed (Education and most of Games), and a few hand-picked applications to make it useful (VLC, GIMP, LibreOffice, Calibre, Filezilla, Skype, Pidgin, etc.). The base edition is designed to fit on a 2G thumb drive.

    The common edition has more in common with the current full edition than it does with the base edition. In fact, it was crafted from the full edition by simply removing some of the development tools, all Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) and some of the larger redundant packages (e.g. Calligra). Both common and full provide the same system services and libraries. The suite of applications provided with the common and full editions include many more sophisticated graphics, multimedia and internet tools than the base edition. The common edition was designed to provide a fully functional desktop with all the trimmings for non-developers.

    The full edition was always intended to be used for software development. It provides the same suite of applications as the common edition (plus Calligra) and includes several IDEs (Netbeans, Eric, Bluefish, Gambas, Glade, KDevelop, Mono Develop, etc.), most available compilers including Python, Ruby, Tcl/Tk, C, C++, Java and Basic, version management software (e.g. CVS, Subversion), database management (e.g. Pgadmin, Squirrel-SQL, Connector/J), the Tomcat application server, web services (e.g. Apache, PHP) and as many support libraries as possible without blowing over the 4.7G DVD size.
