Trying out SolydK Linux distro. Seems pretty nice. It has this welcome screen at first boot that tells you about various programs offered and offers to install them for you. Pretty awesome.

I only have one complaint thus far. It talks about Clementine which is an awesome media player and then says "For SolydK Amarok is installed. It has the same functionality as Clementine." That just is not true!

Amarok is a good media player but it is more of a social media player. It lacks the one thing I use most and that is play lists. It does not have the same functionality as Clementine.

Maybe I should post this on their forums...

I need some suggestions. I'm looking for a good stable Linux distro to do my work in that isn't so crash or issue prone. While I'm very capable of fixing many issues I'm getting tired of having to deal with issues or having a random log out while in the middle of a project. Stability and being up to date are important to me.

Any suggestions of a distro for me to look at?

My most favorite hack so far and my most favorite LP. This is the play list that made me a subscriber.

Thank you very much! Though, I have to say it is probably more the hack than anything else. I definitely had an experience with it in my first playthrough.

So I gave plasma 5 a brief try today on my arch Linux machine. Here's some quick thoughts:

The good: beautiful, modern looking, and the calendar and menu pop ups are nice.

The bad: not a lot of applets yet. No kf5 programs yet. Had to make sure to install kde4 programs to do anything. Of course this is early so they get a pass here.

The ugly: freezes, plasma crashes, high CPU usage for some reason, and generally feels unstable.

But still... Plasma 5 is looking real nice. I can't wait until it becomes stable and complete. It will really be an amazing environment. But for now kde4 is just fine.

For the record I was running nouveau drivers which might not yet play well with plasma 5. This was a fresh install box that I set up just for testing plasma 5 and done on the metal and not via virtual box so that VB couldn't be blamed.
