Netrunner (Albedo) â A look at a brand new distro!

,----[ Quote ]
| The Gnome DE and no Mono in connection with 
| its Ubuntu roots make this distro a winner 
| in my opinion. Whilst I am going to favor 
| any distro which excludes Mono as default 
| it has to be remembered how rock solid 
| Ubuntu is.  Even when booting from the 
| LiveCD a few things struck me, first was 
| the speed.  I cannot say if this is due to 
| the absence of Mono or the tinkering in 
| other areaâs by the Netrunner team, but 
| Netrunner LiveCD is noticeably faster on 
| the same machine than Ubuntu LiveCD(from 
| which its based).
| [...]
| Donât let this first release of Netrunner 
| make you think its incomplete, Iâll stress 
| this is a fully functional, damn good 
| distro.  I expect Netrunner now only to 
| improve on the solid first steps it has 
| already made.
| Highly recommended and Im glad that at 
| least the developers of Netrunner have 
| returned âthe gift to the worldâ of Mono 
| back to the shop.
