  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

I will scrap ChakraOS for Netrunner Rolling any day of the week.

Many many things broken in Chakra work like a charm in Netrunner Rolling.

so far, no problems at all.

While I had to abandon Manjaro, ARCH and Chakra for crashes and other chaos mayhem, I'm gonna stick with NR RLG big time now.

For some reason I keep coming back to Netrunner. It's an excellent distro that focuses on stability and does so astoundingly well. I've distro-hopped all over the place but Netrunner is my main computers choice distro by a long shot.

It's a good system, lightweight and responsive.
The look is unique, the most beautiful Plasma out there.
My external WiFi card works out of the box unlike in a pure Debian.
After installing WL river I have connection, something whch does not occur on Debian
due to problems with network interfaces.
I like it and think it's a better choice than a pure Debian.
