back in the linux distro game. what is a good KDE based distro to use? i want to run the latest KDE plasma version, sadly kubuntu doesn't seem to have that yet. i am using mint 19 now. very stable, elegant... but getting boring, also cinnamon is a bit bloated.
my laptop has hybrid amd graphics which just missed out on the amdgpu supported list cutoff so i am gonna use radeon open source driver.

EDIT: this is for general and dev usage - i'm looking for the following to work:
- playing netflix videos over firefox (i believe this is easy to do even outside ubuntu)- viber and whatsapp client installation- java development, postgresql DB (this should be easy to setup with most distros really)- nice fonts (i believe ubuntu has the best fonts, but feel free to educate me)- spotify is not an essential but nice to have
- of course considerable customization, hence KDE
Intel Core i5-4440 w/ Deepcool Ice Edge Mini FS 2.0 | Asus B85M-G | Zotac Geforce GTX960 2GB (128-bit) | G-Skill Ripjaws 16GB DDR3 1600 | Samsung 850 EVO 500GB | Mushkin Reactor 1TB | Dell U2311H | Corsair VS550 | Tecware Alpha | SteelSeries Rival 300 | SteelSeries Apex M500 (Cherry MX Blue)

Pop quiz: there are a few hobby and pro woodworkers now locally who have Scandinavian style workbenches.

So what are the holes on the top used for? Any guesses :) ?

I don't think so. Can the company not send the items directly to you?

they apparently use postal service, which from what i've been reading is quite horrible. the items me and a group of people wanna order is a bunch of Magic cards, so it can be of enough value that people don't wanna risk postal service.

On a whim, I checked my router's intrusion blocking security logs only to find out the firewall was hit with the ICMP Blacknurse attack. I guess that explains the intermittent internet access yesterday. Things seem back to normal now. Fingers crossed.
