After trying many Ubuntu derivatives: Pop OS, Elementary, etc. my recommendation is…
Just use Ubuntu.
@vmstan I've also distro hopped a bunch, I usually stick to Ubuntu's official variants. I use Xubuntu, personally, just because I'm an XFCE fan.
I would agree nowadays. Stock Ubuntu before had Amazon web apps in it which felt icky. Landed on Ubuntu Budgie because of this a few years ago and its been hard to move since. I think it gets more recent kernels than stock LTS?
