Some of my favorite LINUX resources
Ubuntu-MATE – Is by far one of my favorite Linux DE distros which I ran for about a year or more.
Kubuntu is currently my daily driver and enjoy it very much. VERY configurable.
KDE Neon is the core for Kubuntu, but uses a stable release of the OS (LTS) and a more updated version of the KDE Desktop.
Solus is a another distro that offers some pretty awesome desktops, including Solus Budgie, which is also offered by;
ubuntu Budgie which offers a Ubuntu base with Ubuntu familiar applications as well as the Ubuntu package manager, apt.
