I would like to try again. What is the best distro with the best KDE experience out of the box? Suse?

@robert kubuntu or manjaro
depending if you want to go apt or pacman
I've not tried SuSe for many years so I can't comment

@robert that been said I have had issues with Manjaro and using more than 1 HDD but that being said I have 4 in my system all for Linux since I ditched windows totally the other week

@speaksthegeek I like it for the most part! Honestly I have been at a conference all week and left that laptop at home. I will play with it more next. First impression of it is good!

@robert
Pretty much any distro now supports officially KDE, and you can now download any distro with KDE by default.

@iLoveCinnamon True, but I was using PopOS which I like a lot, but pretty sure their KDE implementation is vanilla at best.

@claudiom Very very fascinating. What does this exist when Kubuntu exists? Different aim? Different repos?

@robert I think it uses Ubuntu as the base, but the KDE stuff is usually the latest and greatest version of all KDE applications.

@robert The KDE team is responsible for this distro.

@robert I personally haven't tried it, but some podcasters I listen to have used it and like it.

@robert And, if you hadn't noticed, they also are working on a laptop called the KDE SlimBook which runs Neon preinstalled.

neon.kde.org/slimbook

Tbh? I’d say Kubuntu. I’ve used for years and trying things like Fedora’s KDE didn’t feel the same. If you want the latest and greatest, #KDE Neon neon.kde.org/ will be your best bet.

@robert is kde plasma not available as an option on debian?

@robert Kubuntu! 19.04 is coming out in like a week or two but 18.10 is already great

@robert I was KDE Neon user for a while and I recommend it but is not a distro itself

I used KaOS before I switched to Qubes (which you coud run with KDE as well), and I don't agree with the author of the article. KaOS handled the monster KDE very well, from my perspective.
