Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Distribution: Windows 10, Debian and derivatives, Mint, Whatever I find new and interesting
If you are looking for something lightweight, then go for LXLE or Cub Linux, later is real eye candy. Antix MX is also real light, based on a stripped XFCE. Or you can check NetRunner if as you say KDE is your thing.
Hello! I love Ubuntu. I sorta like Unity. Its look is nice, but it makes some things a little bit more of a hassle to do. I want to switch to another distro that's based on Ubuntu, not debian. (I know that Ubuntu is based on Debian, I'm saying no Debian based)
I've tried Linux Mint, but it has issues like when I'm typing, the touchpad will randomly activate and delete what im typing or will go inbetween a word.
Peppermint OS looks nice, but I'm not a big fan of the "internet" based apps.
Kubuntu I love, but I can't get the Super/Windows key to activate the menu, and it's super heavy on resources.
Ubuntu Gnome really doesn't let you customize...
Xubuntu/Lubuntu look dated.
What are some distros you'd reccomend that are based on Ubuntu...?
maybe get off the beaten path of main lining Distros.
I use void, it is fast install fast start up, fast updates, fast install stuff, fast shut down. lots of desktops to choose from.
as far as your touch pad doing what you say. Yep I hate it when that happens. you just need to turn it off, or set it up to not work while typing.
