Fedora 33

I was an Ubuntu fan until I tried to install on my latest laptop and had all sorts of issues. Moved to Fedora 33 and have never been happier!

While am primarily a Slackware and Debian-based user, please note that systemd-free Devuan came out with its Beowulf 3.1.0 point release several days ago. See https://www.devuan.org/os/announce/b...nnounce-021421 for the announcement and further info.

I don't remember who I'm replying to here but...Forget KDE or Gnome, I like XFCE and XFWM. Admittedly, probably the most popular distro using those is Xubuntu, which actually has its downsides, but it's adequately stable, and easy enough to customize once you're familiar with it, and it will run KDE and gnome stuff it you want it to. (There's actually a GUI setting for that!) Plus I like being able to make my desktop look like (ahem) Windows 98 without trying too hard. :P
One of the aforementioned downsides to the latest LTR 20.04 is that the XFCE4-notes application... is not compatible with the XFCE4 environment included, and the updated version that will run on that, won't run on GTK2. (and over half of the Xubuntu themes are still GTK2 so good luck.)

Update: I'm a little happier with Xubuntu 20.04 now but what a pain to get what I wanted out of it, such as my traditionally tan window decorations, wide scrollbars with whatever colors I wanted, and custom icons, (OOmox solved that after a lot of trial and error) replaced the Notes application with another, etc. Only the panels were easy to change without trouble. I do admit it's faster than my older Xubuntu releases, which were all 32-bit. I did recently install a 32-bit 18.04 on an old laptop, which there's no way I could do that with 20.04 as they've dropped support for older 32-bit hardware. (Which was initially the point of say, Xubuntu and Lubuntu.) In future I think those old boxes will have to run something like MX.
