Using the 64bit system running live on DVD now and works very well...........the first distro to detect any of my wifi cards straight away without any prompting, only added the password for immediate connection.

 

Tried it on laptop, booting from USB in 40 seconds..........superb.

 

 

Many Thanks   Dahaka

Ya, you're all welcome. I have a desktop PC with NetRunner which I set up especially for online transactions. It works awesome. I have just installed this latest version of NetRunner on it.

Well, it's actually on my mech HDD and working very well. I reported that this and Zorin 9 run AOK side by side, but it really seems to me that Netrunner is ahead of the game as far as having a more complete package put together, and using the Muon Discovery search is really helpful for finding other software you want.

Of course, I'm still stuck on Windows Boot Manager's cleanliness, so make it load my Windows & Linux distros.  ;)

It's great! On Linux Mint you may have to install/configure a few things before you get it running the way it should.

its nice to see others finding out how easily that Netrunner Distron

runs and works. i started with Netrunner 13 and decided to keep

a Multiboot with my win 7. Most ppl that i tell about it don't believe

it can replace windows. That was what i liked about the most, besides

beimg so compatible with my laptop and desktop hardware.

i jut might have to upgrade to the 14 too.

 

i hope you all have a great weekend.

As much as I enjoyed Netrunner I made the switch to ZorinOS. I really liked the out of the box features more than Netrunner. It's just another option for those that want to make the switch to Linux. It has a theme switcher built in for Windows 7, Mac OSX, Gnome, and Unity. Of course Steam isn't automatically installed like Netrunner if that's what you want, but I just like the the overall look and feel of ZorinOS a little better.

What is the difference between the regular release, and the rolling release.  I looked, and looked, but could not find an explanation.

Thank you.  It would have been nice if that could have been explained on the website!

Our VIPs are already aware of this, since it was posted in a VIP area, and it certainly s/b posted here.

I have Netrunner 14 x64 running dual boot with Windows 7 Ult x64 on Disk 1 (WD 750 Gb 7200 rpm mech drive) with their own MBR along with my SSD (Disk 0) that default boots, since it's the 1st boot device (no boot menu).
 
To select windows 7 or Netrunner I hafta select Disk 1 through my Boot Menu (F12 on this laptop), and the grub loader only has 2 options, Default of Windows 7 x64, which boots after 10 seconds if not entered 1st, or Netrunner 14 x64, if selected.
 
I chose to keep the grub loader on Disk 1, since it doesn't mess up my Stargate bootscreen & Boot logo for Windows 7, that I was able to keep working by not using W8.1 dual boot.
 

This setup works nicely & all 3 OSes share the Storage Partition on Disk 1, and

Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 both run the same virtual machines from that partition as well.
