Best KDE Linux Distributions For Your Desktop

KDE remains one of the most popular desktop environments (well as voted at http://www.linuxandubuntu.com/home/5-best-linux-desktop-environments-with-pros-cons) available for Linux users. KDE prioritizes aesthetics and modernity with a user-friendly computing experience. It also comes with a host of applications and features that complete the experience. But which distro does KDE best? I certainly do not know the right answer but what I can do is share some of KDE's best distros in the market now. Some distros certainly do KDE better than others and if you’ve been burnt before, I bet one of these might change your mind.

For the uninitiated you get various distros such as Ubuntu, Fedora, Suse Linux, Linux Mint, Manjaro, etc and each of these then offers various flavours of desktop environment such as Gnome, KDE, MATE, Cinnamon, etc. So switching from Mint's KDE to Manjaro's KDE will give you a very familiar desktop look and feel.

I am personally using the Manjaro KDE 64-bit release.

This New Website Makes It Easy To Learn Linux

Check out Linux Journey, a new website built by Redditor WarbyDarby, and designed to help you learn how Linux works.

The site thankfully skips the usual clichéd articles that traditionally pad out introductory sites. You know the kinds of posts I mean: ‘what is Linux?’, ‘how to choose a distro’, ‘how to dual boot with windows’, etc.

Not that those aren’t useful. If you don’t know if you want to use Linux they most certainly are.

But installing Linux doesn’t instantly unlock a fountain of knowledge in your head. It’s the starting point of long journey

So, instead, the aptly-named Linux Journey puts the focus on telling you about the stuff that matters, stuff about Linux itself.

A bevy of bitesize lessons aim to teach you how key parts of Linux work they way they do (no matter which distribution you install) as well as how you can use, master and/or learn from them.

Meet Etcher, A Stylish Open-Source USB Image Writer Tool

An open-source tool that works cross-platform (Windows, OS X, and Linux) for writing images to USB or SD cards. It makes the process of creating a bootable USB stick for Ubuntu really easy, especially as the same directions can be used on any of the major desktop OSes.

This nifty image burner app is called Etcher and, to quote the project website it is:
“…a powerful OS image flasher built with web technologies to ensure flashing an SDCard or USB drive is pleasant and safe experience. It protects you from accidentally writing to your hard-drives, ensures every byte of data was written correctly and much more.”

Read the article at http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2016/05/etcher-usb-image-burner-tool-linux-open-source or visit Etcher's website at http://www.etcher.io/.
