Linux Distro To Try: Neptune OS

The Casanova Team takes a look at Neptune OS in our latest Linux Distro To Try.

In a recent announcement on NeptuneOS website. A developer announced the launch of their latest update 4.5.

Neptune 4.5.1 ISOs are available for download now and update the system since the Neptune 4.5 release to the state of 3. May 2016.

The biggest issue fixed in this release is the usb booting from USB 3 ports. Besides that this new maintainance release features KDE SC 4.14.16 as desktop.

The Plasma 5 version was updated to Plasma 5.6.2 with KDE Frameworks 5.21.

What is Neptune OS according to their team?

Neptune is a GNU/Linux Distribution for desktops based fully upon Debian 7.0 (‘Wheezy’), except for a newer kernel and some drivers. It ships with a modern KDE Plasma Desktop with its main view on a good looking multimedia system which allows for getting work done. It also is a system which is flexible and very useful on usb sticks. Therefore we developed easy to use applications like USB Installer aswell as a Persistent Creator that allows you to store changes to your system on your live usb stick.

The Debian repository is the major base for getting updates and new software. Furthermore Neptune ships with its own software repository to update our own applications. (see Neptune Repositories for more information)

Neptune tries to get the BeOS message of a fully supported multimedia OS to a next generation of users.

Neptunes focuses on providing an elegant out of the box experience for the users. Therefor we ship a nice and simple overall look and feel aswell as a whole bunch of multimedia tools, like codecs, flash player, audio and video player.
