Netrunner 12.12 review - Starts low, ends high

Filed under
Linux

Netrunner is a Kubuntu-based distro, with some extras of its own. Only the last time I tested Netrunner, I was not that much impressed. The distro was plagued with bugs and little issues, all of which cropped from its transformation from a stock Kubuntu into something more. But therein lies the rub, the magic. How do you makeover a distro without adding problems?

Six months since Dryland, the latest version promises to take care of the problems and offer a fresh new experience to its users. Let's see if this is indeed true. Anyhow, I am writing this review with possibly some friendly bias, since you may have read my articles in Netrunner Magazine, but that should not bother you much. You will get the story as it is, no sugarcoating. Do follow me.
