in my opinion...netrunner did a good job with their kde desktop,they included additional icons.their fonts were nice.only downfalls were the pesky volume issues which were easily fixed by adjusting the pcm,the constant window manager crashes,and runs kinda hot.
mint 12 kde.they did a beautiful job with.although the fonts are terrible,the nepomuk crashes(fixed by upgrading to 4.
,the freezes,and the cpu usage.
havent used it in a looooong time so dont k now how its running now.
i currently run kubuntu 12.04 beta1.i love it but it has its issues also.downloading mint 12 kde right now and gonna give it a go.
in my opinion,deciding between mint and netrunner,i would say mint.and thats only from experience.though ive had my arguments about it in the past,they still do a great job.
