Bit of a twist for me on this one. On my primary desktop I am going to forever be trying new things and will always be installing and reinstalling distros. That’s fine for my general use but I am kicking around ideas for the best distro and DE combo for dedicated workstations. The workstation is mainly for hosting processes and processor-intensive things like rendering audio and video. Given that, I’m thinking stability and performance are the main considerations, much more so than what I think is “fun” or “interesting”.
So my short list at this point would be Ubuntu based distro and likely Plasma or XFCE for the DE. That would mean Kubuntu and Xubuntu are likely candidates for me but I thought it would be good to see what everyone thinks about this topic.
So, what distro/DE combo do you or would your run in this case? Thanks!
