Maui Linux is a desktop Linux distribution based on KDE neon and featuring KDE’s Plasma desktop.

It was created in August 2016 as a continuation of Netrunner’s Kubuntu-based “Desktop” edition, but it was re-based on KDE neon which is a more cutting-edge project with frequent updates and a semi-rolling release model.

Besides providing a KDE-centric distribution with many popular KDE packages included on the live DVD, the project also focuses on integrating non-KDE software, such as Firefox, Thunderbird or VLC with the underlying infrastructure of the Plasma desktop.

Maui 1 starts with shipping the following software versions (excerpt):

    • Linux Kernel 4.4.0~36
    • Plasma 5.7.3 on Qt5.7.0
    • Frameworks 5.24
