    I've written a long and rather negative review of Netrunner Rolling 2014.09 64-bit edition, a distribution based on Arch Linux and Manjaro, with the KDE desktop environment, covering live use, installation in a quad-boot setup on a laptop with Intel graphics, network and two SSD, plus post-install use, including look & feel, Wireless, Bluetooth, Samba, multimedia - MP3 and Flash, manual partitioning, applications, package management, system settings, system resources, and many problems like inability to format partitions and insufficient sanity checks in the installation wizard, broken updates, no Samba printing, no desktop effects, high memory usage, sluggish browser performance, and more. Plus a song. What? Yes, you have to take a look.

    Hope it doesn't affect you writing at their magazine. ;)

    Why should it ... honesty is the key, no?

    Disappointed. I really like the netrunner UI. Their start menus is way better than the standard that comes with KDE which IMO is clumsy and unintuitive. Hopefully they will get their game together. So far my top 3 distros are Debian/OpenSUSE and Centos.
