What I’ve used so far:

  1. Ubuntu
  2. KDE neon
  3. Linux Mint
  4. Debian

I don’t really like the MacOS feel, so things like ElementaryOS are not an option. I’m eyeing Pop!_OS though, but maybe there are less known distros that are worth a try. Suggestions?

Definitely try Pop!_OS! It has a very usable and fast desktop environment and comes with a well maintained software manager.

I’ve been using it for more than a month after I made that post. Its great, I like it a lot. The software manager is usable, but still the worst part of the system, like all the Linux distros I’ve used.

Manjaro KDE, ofc not Ubuntu/Debian based, but why not try something new?

I only own one device, and its the device I also do work on. I’ve been using Debian based distros for 4 years now, and it just works for me. I don’t feel like I’m in a position to change my workflow. Now I think about it, would my workflow change that much? Other than .deb files not working, and using something other than apt, what else is different?

Not much really. It comes with a graphical repository manager that works similar to apt based tools.

Ohh okay, might give an Arch based distro a try then. Not Manjaro though, I don’t like the project leaders after the whole treasurer fiasco.

You will probably have a bad time with anything other than Manjaro coming from Ubuntu, especially normal Arch.

I would say give Manjaro a try first and only of you like arch based stuff switch to something else later.

And IMHO the treasurer story was a storm in the waterglass issue that really was much less problematic than some people claim.

Try Manjaro Gnome with Gnome Tweaks

If it “just works” for you, why do you want to try a new one?

Devuan 3 + Cinnamon + OpenRC

Pop OS, ZorinOS, Ubuntu Gnome, with Gnome Tweaks (and extensions) installed

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
