I'm also a KDE neon user and it's just fantastic! Very stable and well-supported Ubuntu LTS base + new and shiny KDE software on top which is super polished, intuitive, and somehow light on system resources. Definitely recommend it!

I'm following KDE Neon development lastly and I see that in the lasts months it's becoming more and more integrated also with Gnome applications making it a kind of universal OS for Linux plus its own niceties.
But what's the difference with something like Kubuntu since they are both Ubuntu based distro with KDE on top?

Kubuntu is Ubuntu with KDE Plasma, so it'll get more updated packages from Ubuntu and you could also get a non-LTS base.

Neon on the other hand is always based on Ubuntu LTS, so Ubuntu packages may be a bit more behind, but you get the latest and greatest KDE stuff.
