    Ubuntu LTS / LMDE or Debian stable , most of the updates for years (between version updates) are just bug fixes.

    What i tend to find with LTS is more of a case of software becoming out of date rather than bugs.

    Be easier if everyone & their Grandma wouldn't release one.

    A lot of them are niche, most newbies will go with Ubuntu or mint.

    Been thinking about moving to Manjaro MATE, but just found out that secure boot will cut all but Windows 11 & Ubuntu out. i can't stay with 10 forever. Well I could, but not a smart choice.
