Netrunner Sprints Ahead of the Linux Distro Pack

Filed under
Linux

Enigma" may be the nickname of the latest release of the Netrunner Linux distro, but there's actually nothing enigmatic about it. In fact, Netrunner 13.06 -- also known as "Netrunner 5" -- delivers one of the most satisfying out-of-the-box desktop experiences I have had in quite some time.

I spend an inordinate amount of time testing and using different Linux distributions. My experiences with these sometimes-obscure distros and other Linux applications are the subjects right here in this weekly Linux Picks and Pans report.

After putting so many Linux distros through their paces, though, one desktop flavor tends to blur with another. Most distros, regardless of their desktop options, are very similar; more often than not, their distinguishing trait is how they perform or what they lack or how they differ from the expected.
