Isn't Antergos just a simple GUI installer wrapped around Arch, with an extra repo for icons and pre-configured DE's?

best distribution of year

being very new to Linux i found Linux Mint as the best distribution of the year. super easy availability of Isos on its official website just made my work easy and the compatibility with my hardware is worth appreciating, i am having an old desktop Intel core 2 duo on which Linux mint 18.3 Sylvia Cinnamon edition is running pretty good no glitches. as being new to Linux i found it easy to install absolutely free open source, cinnamon edition was quiet similar to windows which helped me how it works. Great Respect for Slackware being one of the oldest surviving distribution ever, deserves respect. Debian also deserves to be the Best Distribution of year, installing gnome shell on wayland as Display server was easier in Debian than in Ubuntu. && installing Arch Linux taught me beautifully how to communicate with your hardware. it taught me the obedience as to how to text your hardware and get your work done.

I consider it a distro because they are using Arch repos plus their own Antergos repos. Of course, it's mainly "easy to install Arch".

By all means try DDE. In the meantime make sure to use the latest KDE5. I use openSUSE, with leap KDE was -- well, not nice, openSUSE tumbleweed on the other hand always has the latest version of KDE5/Plasma and boy, that is a difference...

You can search for deepin 15.5 in youtube and check out what DDE is really like

Slackware.

It's the only distro I've used since 1997 that has ALWAYS remained stable as long as my hardware did

A lot of love for Slackware here. Really interested in the result [even though I chose Debian].

Checked Arch as I will do for the server flavor. Arch will be what you want it to be from server to multimedia player your choice. I'm not so interested in the ease of installation : I did it once and forgot about it since then. I do one install per machine either Thinkpad P51 or raspberry Pi.
