Netrunner 2016.1 Review

Netrunner is a free, open source GNU/Linux distribution that offers a lean KDE experience. It comes in two different flavors. A standard release which is based on Kubuntu and the other one, a rolling distribution is based on Arch, or more specifically on Manjaro.

The Everyday Linux User has published a review of recently released Netrunner 2016.1, latest updated image of Netrunner rolling distribution. Reviewer had a good time with Netrunner during his one week experiments. However, he points out it's bulkiness and resource usage. He things that, Netrunner standard release is for ordinary people and rolling release is for those who prefer to play with their operating system.

There are two versions of Netrunner available, the standard release which is based on Kubuntu which itself is based on Debian and the one which I am reviewing today which is based on Manjaro which in turn is based on Arch. Whether you use the Debian base or the Manjaro base you will always end up with the Plasma desktop environment. I have had Netrunner running for over a week and I have used it on my main laptop therefore I feel I have had long enough to find out the good, the bad and the downright ugly.
