Netrunner is a popular distro based on the famous lightweight and highly customizable Arch Linux and Debian GNU/Linux operating systems, and until today, it was distributed as Rolling (Arch-based) and Desktop (Debian-based) editions. Maui is the new name of the Netrunner Desktop flavor, which has been rebased on KDE Neon.
KDE Neon is also a relatively new project, available as both a layer that can be added on top of an existing Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system and an independent OS downloadable as Live ISO images shipping with the latest KDE Plasma desktop environment and applications, based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
Dubbed Aurora, the first stable release of Maui, version 1, is now available for download and includes lots of up-to-date GNU/Linux technologies and software projects, among which we can mention KDE Plasma 5.7.3, KDE Applications 16.04.3, KDE Frameworks 5.24.0, Qt 5.7.0, Mozilla Thunderbird 38.6.0, and VLC Media Player 2.2.2.
