Reddit: Is fedora or opensuse welcoming to new users who want to use it daily for non-coding purposes?

Friday 10th of June 2016 05:54:08 PM

I basically want to use linux the same way I use windows, for entertainment. Watch videos, twitch streams, movies. Play some games that work fine on linux and ye that's pretty much it, I'll keep W10 for microsoft office and adobe stuff.
I want a visually appealing one as well, that's why fedora on GNOME seems like the best choice, but I'm not sure if its easy to use. I have seen linux mint as well but its kinda windows look-a-like.

TuxMachines: Q&A: Jonathan Riddell on the release of KDE neon User Edition 5.6

We had to fill in a few gaps in what Plasma offers its users to complete the experience but we did that by working in Plasma rather than doing our work separately. So we added bootup themes for Grub and Plymouth and we’ve worked to make sure the app store, Discover, covers the whole archive. But the most important feature is what Neon is intended to be, a Plasma 5.6 desktop as the developers intended it.
