I always advise running a distro with its default GUI. It's the one most of the developers use and most of the users download, so the quality is going to be good. OpenSUSE has always been a KDE distro, as has PCLinuxOS, and they're both pretty good.

https://www.gnu.org/distros/common-distros.en.html don't see "Devon" in there (nor-care ) but some install KDE5* (and smarts) eg: https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/u...y-live-builds/

One thing though, Kde is fairly heavy . For most people this is no problem, but on older hardware it can get slow.

Have fun!

Bloated like your capitalised word (here's some...) but, less so than m$ plus KDE is open to change,,, I run it on old stuff to do more as it does( like my IBM T20 from a thrift store)!

If yous complain about something open source aren't just mad at self‽

I thought openSUSE even has the KDE core devs on its payroll?
