Netrunner Desktop is based on Debian Stable with the latest Qt, Plasma, Framework and KDE Applications.
Netrunner Desktop 17.01.2 “Baryon” has jumped from Debian Jessie to snapshot “20161211” of the upcoming Debian Stretch. This means the system can be kept on a certain version stack, while it is also easy to enable the corresponding repositories for continously tested updates.
Netrunner Desktop adds the usual selection of software applications like KDEnlive, Gimp, VLC, Libreoffice, Audacious, Steam, Skype, Transmission, Virtualbox, Krita, Inkscape and many more.

Please note that while we have chosen the same tested base versions as Netrunner Core, we also provide backports repositories which include the Plasma 5.8.2 release, Frameworks 5.27, and many more. The backports entries are already listed as part of your apt sources, and simply need to be enabled with a click in the first row.
