If Neptune had improved a bit more Id have listed it and was hoping ROSA would be better. Really like MX19 but I dont run XFCE distros any more except to test.

Yeah, Neptune is SUPER buggy right now. Which is odd given they've hardly changed anything from their parent distro except it seems to make it far less stable and far less usable. That's a bold move Cotton, we'll see how it works out for them.

I'm very upset with Rosa. They need to decide on a direction and stick to it. Up to date distro? Stable distro with good stability? What, make up your minds!!!

Mageia is pretty good but they offer nothing thats new, innovative or creative and thus its an updated rehash. Not enough there to attract someone who could be using Neon for really up to date software or Debian with its great stability. I run Q4OS in reality as Debian 10 so I really should remark my comments given how little difference there is between Debian and Q4OS KDE at this time.

Not particularly, no. There's been the occassional "oh, I'd like to try that to see this one new thing that they're the first to adopt", but that's kinda it. Reason I'm having such a hard time finding a 4th OS to really use on my personal systems. :D

Ive been using Neon quite a bit more as I tend to like having a more up to date distro thats been pretty stable so far.

I like Neon more again now that it's got a 5.3 kernel available, so that I can upgrade to AX wifi cards if I choose.
