I think this is accurate for me five years ago, but not anymore. I don't want to do more configuration, I got that out of my system. I wouldn't say I enjoy dotfiles so much as I don't mind them, but a boring, stable, static OS is precisely what I want. I do think Manjaro is a good option for that reason, but honestly think the likelihood of getting funky with dotfiles again is low.

In that case give Pop!_OS by System76 some serious consideration. It comes with gnome by default but install KDE if that's your flavour.

This has been mentioned a few times, and definitely does look interesting. I thought part of the whole point of using Pop!_OS was their customized GNOME experience. If I install KDE instead, why not just install Ubuntu?

I know this is the lazy response, but all the info you need is here: pop.system76.com/docs/difference-b...
