Netrunner 21.01 – “XOXO” releases, based-on Debian Distro
Netrunner is a Linux operating system for desktop computers, netbooks and ARM microcomputers.
It uses the Plasma desktop environment.
The Desktop version ships with a complete set of pre-installed software for everyday use.
The Core version allows you to build up your own system or run it on low-spec hardware like arm-boards.
Netrunner Rolling is based on Arch/Manjaro, whereas Netrunner Desktop and Core are both Debian-based.
It is using KDE Plasma and tuning it to be as snappy and responsive as possible. We actively sponsor development of Plasma’s core and new components are included in Netrunner early on, for example:
– Simplemenu and Dash
– Task-Manager with Expanding Icons
– Desktop Workspace (icons on a clean desktop, no overlays)
– Hot-Spot “Show Desktop” in lower right corner
– Auto-started KWallet
– Simplified System Settings
– Firefox-ESR and Thunderbird with Plasma Integration
– Unified Look for KDE and non-KDE-applications via GTK-Configuration
Minimum System Reqirements
- CPU 1.6-GHz Intel Atom
- RAM 1GB
- Hard Drive Size 15GB
- Graphics Card Intel GMA 945
- Video Memory 128MB
- If you want to try Netrunner in VirtualBox, please make sure to allocate 1.5 GB RAM.
Netrunner 21.01 – “XOXO” was released.
This version is based upon the current Debian Stable 10.7 (“buster”) and comes with better modern hardware support thanks to Linux Kernel 5.9.15 from Debian Buster Backports.
Netrunner 21.01 ships with all the latest security updates provided by Debian and a new beautiful wallpaper showing of the new Codename of this release.
With the activated Debian Buster Backports repository we provide updated firmware for wifi and ethernet chips aswell as improved printer drivers to allow more modern hardware support.
Firefox-ESR and Thunderbird were updated to the latest stable LTS (long term supported) versions, which get regular security updates provided by Debian security.
Netrunner maintains its georgous look and feel from the previous version based upon Breeze Window decoration and the red colors cursor.
