Do you guys know an good Linux-Distro.. :bananas:

 

-> That is easy to use.
-> Have frequently updates and kernel updates (+security updates..)
-> That you can Customize the way you want it.
-> Well confortable to use.. (Stable enough to use)
-> Important thing: Linux-Distro (Code) that is checked by many people and verified as secure to use) ..
-> Alternative to Windows 10 (not Linux mint, because i have problems with gnome-keyring-deamon if i log out or shutdown the PC that damn thing is not reacting,.. and there is possibly no fix for it.. many users have this problem)
    ...
   

Because i've tried all well popular distro's but no one, surprise me really that much.. (but Xubuntu did.. but i'm not sure, want to try out other Distro's as well..)

 

lett me know
Cheers! :)

It depends on what you're going to be doing if you want one that is customizable and runs debian/ubuntu is KDE Neon I would recommend, but if you want something where you want full customizability, I would say debian 9 (I personally use Debian running both gnome3 and KDE). But if you're coming from windows 10 and want customizability, I would use kubuntu or KDE neon (I would recommend KDE Neon bc it uses Debian repositories compared to Ubuntu repositories with Debian kernel) Xubuntu used the XFCE Desktop Environment, but I would recommend if you are have equal or more than 4gb ram, I would suggest KDE Neon (or Kubuntu) but if its less then 4gb I would recommend Cinamon Desktop Enviorment or XFCE (XFCE is super light weight but Cinamon is more windows like) KDE is fully customizable but it would require some work that the community is more than helpful to help you with it (and google will be your best friend  :lmao:  :lmao:)

There is also Manjaro KDE you could try.

It ticks off most of your checkboxes.

It is good for most long time windows users (though you will need to know about things like AUR but its not that hard to get used to)

Its fairly stable these days

And is a very good distro overall.

 

I am also a big fan of the latest Kubuntu 18.04, if you used xubuntu then kubuntu would be almost identical but loaded with a lot of features provided by KDE

 

Or you could wait for the new linux mint 19, whatever issues you have now may not be true with Mint 19

Hmm Kubuntu, looks like Xubuntu, but then with way more customize settings.. and it looks very clean.. :)

How good is the support, and updates with it?

it's based on Ubuntu right, so i will get Frequently updates/security updates (kernel also) ?

and are there any community sites that you recommend when i have any issue with Kubuntu, or can i just ask it here? :)

Thanks! :)

I think i stick with Xubuntu.. for some months, years.. (on my main desktop) on my old laptops i will try these distro's out. 

and then maybe see what have changed in other distro's after some months/years  and then put a new distro on my (main desktop)  :)

but thanks for all the advice guys, i really appreciate it.

Mint or Ubuntu sound appropriate choices, have you tried either of them yet? Mint doesn't get security updates quite as regularly, while Ubuntu is a bit more alien to someone coming from previously using Windows, but both re good and very widely used distros. Both have large numbers of developers though quite what level of code auditing they get with each update to them is unknown to me, they are considered fairly secure but if you have specific reasons to be very security conscious for the system you are using then you'll want to read up more on this and see what you can find details wise on if code gets checked over. They are both very comfortable to use and have plenty of options for customising the user interface, especially if you download some extra packages which give you more options here (personally I haven't felt the need to do this so can't speak for what it's like to do really specialised customisations but things like colours or font defaults are easy to set).
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

What do you use? (Distro)
