About Neptune - Neptune EN
Neptune is a GNU/Linux distribution.
Linux is the major core component of every GNU/Linux distribution which allows software to access hardware and communicate with it.
Neptune package and maintains its own version of the linux kernel which tries to be as close as possible to upstream vanilla kernel (the original linux kernel released on kernel.org).
Neptune is based upon the Debian GNU/Linux distribution
We use the Debian packagemanagement and software sources to provide our users with a great bunch of available applications.
Ontop of this we package and maintain the KDE Plasma Desktop aswell as the whole KDE SC which is updated regulary. Updated regulary means we provide our users with a rolling release model which updates the desktop regulary. However we don’t always provide the latest desktop releases which means we don’t ship bleeding edge software packages. We test and store new desktop versions in a seperate software source which is provided by Neptune by default.
Our main applications we ship also follow the rolling release principle without always shipping bleeding edge software. Therefor we provide our own neptune repository which also contains software developed by us aswell as default configurations and tweaks for the Neptune system.
One major application is the Office Suite LibreOffice which is provided by a seperate repository is updated regulary but for the sake of stability this repository is deactivated by default in Neptune.
