Also, an older kernel doesn't necessarily mean a bad thing. Take CentOS for example.. Rock Solid and runs on 3.10.0.862.x.x kernel. Do I see difference/ advantage with a newer kernel ? Yes. Is it old(that is to say less secure/unusable) ? No.

Also, as I said earlier, one can only lead a horse to water. You can ask opinions and most of us will be happy to help you. But distros are personal choice. 6 years ago, I found a great distro called Pardus which had a very small userbase. It was a personal favorite. But the powers that be, decided to snooze it for 4 years, so had to jump ship.

Go nuts with live iso, create (k)VMs and distro-hop to your heart's content till u find ur one distro to rule them all.
OMG, yes......coming from decades of Windows I am VERY used to ALL updates cause issues...one of the many reasons that I switched....and yes, I know that testing cannot fix or create to fix every issue that might occur with new things

And I seem to be like you....even when in Winverse, I was still very much a FOSS supporter.....used OpenOffice until I found Libre and have used it since finding it.....along with most of my other software...so that part of the jump was pretty easy for me...and I do tend to find and like the smaller less well known 'projects' out there (seems to be a natural talent for me) ..... and I do get bummed when they get dropped

And yes, I absolutely LOVE the fact that if I get tired bored and find that something really isn't fitting me as well as I thought that I can jump to a new distro

I will check out Debian in greater detail...but I am thinking that either Antergos or Peppermint will get my next dance!

Thank you for being so helpful and informative!!!
