For me: OpenSUSE Tumbleweed, no contest. Been using it for years (started with 42.1 to 13.2, Leap and now TW). Switched my parents desktop to it as well. Very reliable.

Q4OS KDE should get a mention as it is rock solid.

I am running Devuan as my main os on my main (desktop) computer: sits there and does the job as expected. Fast, stable, predictable, light in resources, systemD free and the required maintenance of the system is minimal: huge repos to easily find anything, deb packages when needed and sparse updates to deal with.
I am using it also into an ancient, atom netbook with 1gb ram, 13-14 years old.

I played with a lot of distro's and i believe the


one that made the most and best improvements

runs great.

Try to use it on a multiboot system. Their installer is broken IMHO. I can't use it anymore since F17 or so...

Incidentally I recently heard (on a Linux podcast) that Fedora Silverblue does not support multibooting because of its special structure. Maybe that's what you're experiencing?

No, that is not the problem. You simply can't tell the installer to use the partition you want it to use. I left off trying to install Fedora after F27 or so...

I cannot come up with a single answer for this. It depends upon your hardware and what you DO with your desktop. I run two machines now, down from five (and one server with no desktop that I will not discuss here). When I ran five no two ran the same desktop, each ran what was best suited to the purpose of that desktop.

Even for one single person, there may be more than one correct answer!
