Glance over the Fedora blog post if you want to check out more random stuff.
After downloading some Linux distros I can say my favorite is Fedora. Personally, I don't think anyone should pick a “favorite” Linux but instead pick their favorite desktop environment (it's all about the GUI man!). The actual Linux kernel / distro itself, I think, is more or less irrelevant. The graphic interface is what really leaves the impressions. You can make your Linux Distro look exactly like Mac for example, or Windows or anything else using pling and opendesktop.
I believe, in order to have the absolute best linux experience, you should pick, in this order:
- Desktop Environment
- Package Manager
- Snaps do not give user performance
- Linux Distro
Favorite Desktop Environments:
I think in terms of raw performance, XFCE is the fasted DE, and KDE is a close follow-up while Gnome, feels a tad bit slower but has some nice stuff to not forget about.
- KDE Plasma (has Wayland or X11)
Fedora is smooth and offers, like most other Linux distro's a “spin” with pre-installed desktop environments and package managers. Fedora makes it very easy to switch desktop environments too!
