Babby First Linux Anonymous 12/17/2019 (Tue) 10:07:21 No. 680
So, I'm finally tired of being a slave of windows and I want to get into linux. I really love KDE Plasma but it is just a DE from what I could understand, and I must choose a distro before. What's the best distro for someone who can't even use git? I don't want any botnet crap btw
>>680 Ubuntu. Get Kubuntu 19.
>>681 Linux Mint is, and likely always will be, my favorite distro. Cinnamon is a great DE that OP should look into.
>>680 Elementary OS They have their own DE
>>680 See this list. Probably pick one with KDE as default. https://www.distrowatch.com/search.php?desktop=KDE+Plasma#simple
>>682 This, Cinnamon Mint is easy to use, looks lovely and functions well.
>>680 If you want the easiest one I would recommend > Kubuntu > Manjaro KDE However, both aren't 100% FOSS by default. (They are mostly, except for some drivers and a few other things) If you're looking for a 100% FOSS distro (Not as noob friendly) I can recommend: > Debian (You'll have to install KDE yourself)
Just dive head in and get Arch Linux there are so many guides to hold your hand through out the installation. Ubuntu is bloated and filled with spyware, avoid that cancer.
>>680 I had linux mint debian edition back when it was still offered, went to normal linux mint, got fed up with not being in the mainline distro packages so went to devuan because of the anti-systemd memes, then discovered you could hold back and purge systemd packages and use init instead on debian, which is what I am using recently. Learned a lot by the way.
>>680 If you want something that just works Kubuntu is nice. However switching to Arch on my main machine when I was a newbie taught me so much. Even if you switch back you will just know so much more than if you stuck with Ubuntu.
