paldo is still active (10+ years) and independently developed, but now as a rolling release. It was one of the early Gnome 3 and systemd adopters and is still largely vanilla, with a few customized install metapackages. The package manager hasn't changed a bit - still command line only and slow, but it works fine with the basic upkg-install/remove/upgrade commands for packages from the online repository. If one dabbles in building packages from source it means manually configuring scripts for dependencies, though, and isn't really worth the time except for the fun of it. Fortunately, the packages repo is sufficient for a gnome-based system and has been consistently maintained for years; it's one of the best features of the distro - kudos to the developer for reliable, bleeding-edge package updates on a roughly weekly basis.

Korora is a great distro. They have implemented their Cinnamon desktop so that runs well with no glitches. (That is an improvement on their last attempt.) I have Korora installed on a machine which literally will not run anything else - including Knoppix or Linux Mint. Everything worked for me out of the box - wireless, printer, videos, etc. Package management with yum is excellent.

Have a double boot of both Cinnamon and XFCE on my Dell netbook. With a divided 250 GB hard drive and a GB of memory, both distros work great. XFCE is slightly faster. My holiday project is to try to get XFCE to install on my 9 year old MacBook Pro, which Apple no longer supports with software/security updates.

I only recommend Gentoo to those who i believe can handle the challenge. Which is rare. I recommend openSUSE to beginners. (no, not ubuntu, no, not fedora either).

I have been using computers since 1984 and working with them since 1990. from CPM & DOS 1.0 through Win 8, with some Puppy Linux variations thrown in. I have been using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr since May, 2014. I moved up to big time (for me) Linux distro because there were too many things that I could not do with Puppy Precise 5.7.1. I had also been using Windows 8.1 on this laptop for about a year when it started committing suicide. Multiple times. Like three installations in a row, none lasting more that 24 hours. So in great frustration with Windows, I looked for the most popular distros I could find and chose Ubuntu from the mess. The learning curve was much steeper that I expected. I had mistakenly thought that my experience with Puppy would help. LOL! After wiping the drive and a clean install, I began using Ubuntu. There are a few inherent bugs, but; I've found work-a-rounds. Some of the problems I've had involved; Passphrase not being accepted Screenshots hot keys not working Google Chrome not working, at all Reclaiming the classic scrollbar Cleanup/removal of apps Conky Converting video to mp3 CUPS Leaking memory errors Waking from suspend and forgetting settings Touchpad on/off changing on its own Lost launcher Slow Firefox But; to be entirely honest, I was to fault much of the time. I did not understand that thing are just done differently in Linux Smile I'm always in too much of a hurry to wait for something to execute. And even though I been through DOS 1.0 to 6.22, I still had a hard time getting use to the terminal. I have in time, found solutions to all the problems that I have had. There is an immense support community out there in internet-land and they are mostly very supportive. I've found that a Google search will most often come up with answers from Ubuntu Forums and these answers are win! After six months, my current problems are with some of the apps and not really with Ubuntu.
