The Netrunner 20.01 ‘Twenty’ Linux distribution based on Debian is now available for download

One of my favorite Linux distributions is Netrunner. If you are unfamiliar, it is a Debian-based operating system that uses the KDE Plasma desktop environment. It is very refined and chock full of excellent pre-installed applications such as LibreOffice, GIMP, Firefox and Skype. All of which makes Netrunner a great choice for Windows users, but it’s also a wonderful option for Linux experts. Seriously, folks, you will be amazed at how exceptional it is – one of the best.

Today, Netrunner 20.01 becomes available and is a very important milestone. You see, it not only represents 10 years of development, but it is also the twentieth major version of the operating system. And so, the distro based on 10.3 Debian Buster (stable) is nicknamed “Twenty”. Netrunner 20.01 uses KDE Plasma 5.14.5 and comes with a very special birthday backdrop!

“Netrunner 20.01 comes with all the latest security updates provided by Debian and a glossy global ‘Indigo’ theme, using the Kvantum themed engine.
Firefox-ESR and Thunderbird have been updated to the latest stable (long-term supported) LTS versions, which get regular security updates provided by Debian’s security, “says The Netrunner Team.

The team also states: “As for the theme, the transition to the Breeze Window decoration with its darker color increases the contrast and makes it easier to distinguish between active and inactive windows. The red cursor (RED theme) allows you to quickly locate the on the screen and has a retro feel. As always, we provide a uniquely designed background that fits Netrunner’s 10 year milestone and 20 “version.

If you want to try Netrunner 20.01 ‘Twenty “, you can download an ISO here. It is worth noting, however, that while users of OS version 19.08 can upgrade to 20.01 without having to download the ISO, they will not be treated with special theme settings. For this, unfortunately a new installation is required.
