Installed it last night and the GUI is really nice looking. Resource usage was 567mb at GUI. Installer was Calamares and synaptic and update manager used by Mint are there as well. Netrunner includes some nice user features thru the update manager just as Mint does. I enabled backports but they use the 5.10 kernel but only use KDE 5.14.5 which was a bit interesting. Very stable, no hardware issues at all.
Firefox ESR 78.7, Chromium 88, Thunderbird, SMPlayer, Audacious and LibreOffice.
I only added hardinfo, k3b, bleachbit and Chromium.

Decided to see if enabling the testing repo would work as it has worked well with other distros and Netrunner as well in the past. This time around it didnt go well. Enabling testing gets you a boot with significant problems and frankly not worth bothering with.
