A real gem of a distro; amazing to find a truly stable KDE ... every other I'd tried had crashed when using Unify for two monitors; not so with Neptune. Very well maintained. Smooth, fast, beautiful and reliable. Forum response within 3 hours, that fixed Ugee 2150 pressure sensitivity ... needed to install the latest Digimend deb and reboot. Thrilled that the Ugee works, and it's the first time my Epson WF-2630 has ever installed the actual latest driver. Plenty of useful applications already installed. Being able to use deb files for eg expressvpn, megasync and rainlendar2 is wonderful too. Playonlinux/wine/games run really well too. First time using KDE and very happy to settle with Neptune. Donation on the way! :-)

Best KDE distro Ive tried so far. Easy to install, light on resources, love the menu design, easy to update and no issues with any of my hardware, including graphics/printer/wifi.

So many KDE distros have stability issues or use a lot of memory but Neptune doesnt have these issues.

I wish a few more apps were available like Firefox 59 but given the number of apps available Im still happy.
The choice of included apps overall is excellent and easy to find.

Would recommend this distro to both newbies and veterans and being based on Debian 9 is a huge plus.

Give it a try, you wont be disappointed.
