    There's something weird in the comments : you talk about Neon, people answer "I don't like Ubuntu" and every remaining aspect of the video is just left apart. And that is a shame.

    6 months running Neon and not one break. It's been so good to me.

    You need to remember the KDE Neon is maintained by the actual KDE Team and the KDE team placed it on the LTS Ubuntu 18.04 for it's long term OS stability. Where as any other KDE Distro like Manjaro or Arch versions it's up to those distro maintainers to put it all together and in doing so they introduce their own idea of how KDE should be installed or maintained.

    I've been using Neon on my primary computer for a year now and it's been a great experience. I'd recommend it to anyone.

    I've been using KDE Neon for 5 months. It has been stable. I have 6 widgets on my second monitor. I installed the latest 4.20 kernel. I have many ppa's to get the most recent programs. KDE has knocked it out of the park with the release of Plasma. I don't know why it isn't a default desktop on other distros. When Ubuntu chose Gnome (again) that was a real head slapping moment.
    Plasma is fine on a default install. If you want to change its appearance. You have plenty of customizations to choose from.

    Breeze dark theme is the only theme I need if I was using KDE. It's awesome. But if you like customization KDE is for you.

    I like KDE Plasma, I don't like Ubuntu, mostly because of the Snaps. So I use KDE on another distro. KDE isn't perfect yet but it is the best floating window manager which I have found. A few examples of what they could improve:

    – The search function in the Start-menu sometimes gives weird results and it doesn't always automatically highlight something, forcing the user to add more letters or use the mouse (not a big problem but something which could be improved, this might work better in XFCE)

    – You can't remove the volume-icon from the taskbar without removing the widget, it is nice if you can only remove he icon. (maybe you can but not without a bit of 'hacking')

    – The volume OSD from that volume-widget is rather annoying, you can only disable it by editing a text file which is around 5 layers deep from root and often after an update you need to do that again. I also don't like the default auditive feedback and I don't like that they leave the default volume at 100% (it could damage your ears or speakers)

    – A minor issue, it would be nice if you could hide the titlebar and window-buttons by clicking on a box instead of adding a window rule, the window-rule is not complicated but for new users it is a hassle to look up how to do that.

    As I said, it is the best floating windows manager which I have used, I have become extremely critical after many years of using software so I like to see it get even better… 😉
    On that note, I would love it if KDE would also support tiling out of the box (that goes a bit further than snapping windows) and would make it easier to set rules for virtual desktops and positions of windows. Always open program X on these pixels or in virtual desktop X. That would be nice.

    It makes no sense that they have Firefox on a distro which is suppose to celebrate the KDE software – when they have Falkon!!
    I wish they would spend more time on developing Falkon (eg add-ons) rather than bother with integration for the anti-freedom Firefox.

    I am getting better performance on Arch KDE than I ever have on Xfce or Gnome and Chromium-vaapi-bin is just great. Thats chromium with hardware acceleration. Arch KDE stopped my hopping for good.

    To me you just can't beat Arch KDE plasma. Install as plasma and not plasma meta. Simply put there is no better desktop in Linux right now and there will most likely never be. Gnome sure can't come close and all the rest just wish they were half of what Gnome is.

    8:33 And one of the best / worst things about KDE is the amount of customizations available.

    When they say based on Ubuntu, what does that really mean? What are they taking from Ubuntu that’s not just from Debian?

    What I like a lot about KDE Plasma Firefox integration is that I can press Alt+Space to bring up KRunner and then I can search by Firefox tabs and when I select one it switches to it. Really handy since I have tens of tabs open all the time. Also make sure to check KDE COnnect for integration with your mobile phone. Things like this really make KDE Plasma the best desktop ever, not just on GNU/Linux but best even compared to all other proprietary ones.

    You seems to know a lot of distros, so I wonder if you know any light version to run on an older laptop and preferably based.on red hat or such.
    I tried ubuntu-things but either it can't install at all or it"s tol heavy.

    This channel is morphing into distros reviews, maybe we should go back to the fundamentals. Please do more videos on actual Linux content such as storage, virtualization, configuration, different solutions to different types of use cases (cluster, ceph, etc), and other stuff. There are too many channels doing distros reviews.
