Which OS do you use primarily?

Yeah, but then the question becomes: Who should be the standard? There are so many competing libraries that even that is impossible to answer. I think it's best that the ecosystem be as it is and let the users decide what they want to stick with.

Another good option is OEMs, whichever distro is chosen by OEMs can become the standard, similar to what System76 does with Pop OS. That, of course, requires that more OEMs distribute Linux pre-installed.

The only thing about KDE I don't find snappy is the launcher which seems to lag at times. Everything else seems okay.

KDE isn't as snappy as I hoped to be, even with official Nvidia drivers and a 1080.
Its the most feature rich UI though. Just not as snappy.
Could be the nVidia Linux drivers. I've always found KDE to be snappy.

Only initial releases of KDE 4 were a mess (a decade ago) and only Arch + KDE 4 "mod" used to be snappy.

Last time I used, animations felt like 35-45 fps not 60 fps locked

1.pop os
2.Manjaro - if you can handle a little instability

Yup. When I started this thread, I myself was exploring the nix world. And after Starting with Ubuntu, migrating to Mint, now I am finally settled on Manjaro itself. :)
It feels just right.

Me too. My journey was like this - Ubuntu 18, ubuntu 19, ubuntu 20, manjaro, popos , manjaro and I am now finally settled on manjaro . I still use windows on my primary pc though.
(and hence I am one of the windows 10 user on the poll:emoji_sweat_smile: ).

My first distro was Knoppix on live CD back in 2004. It's ISO was on the Digit DVD at that time and I had got a new CD burner (as part of Digit's scheme). So tried it out and got hooked like that.

Knoppix is still around IIRC.
