Desktop choice is a hallmark of Linux and Jack Wallen today predicted which will become more popular in 2017. His list may surprise you. In other news, Jonathan Riddell said today that KDE neon would be switching installer from its current Ubiquity to another gaining in popularity. It's currently in the developer version, but it'll soon make its way into the user recommended version. Linux Mint founder Clement Lefebvre today announced changes to the Cinnamon desktop applets. He said he was concerned about security of 3rd party contributions given last year's security breach. Elsewhere, Robin Miller defended his Ubuntu choice saying, "So call me mass-average. Call me boring. Call me one of the many, the humble, the Ubuntu users!"
Netrunner Minor Update Release 17.01.2
Today we released an updated Netrunner 17.01.2 Desktop ISO, which ships the just released version 3.0 of Calamares Installer and KPMCore 3.0.2.
This hopefully will fix the UEFI bootloader issues that some people reported, so if you experienced those with the previous ISO, this might fix it.
