    And conversely, if the main driver for someone to be on a rolling distro is to get the latest DE updates but they'd really prefer a stable base, there's also OpenSUSE Argon which isn't talked about as much and many people probably have never heard of.

    It's a similar approach to KDE neon, but using OpenSUSE Leap as a base instead of an Ubuntu LTS. You could of course add the repos and update a regular Leap install instead.

    That's one of my favorite things about OpenSUSE, they support the most models.
    • True rolling
    • LTS Base + rolling DE
    • LTS (which also tends to pull in more new stuff in annual (ish) updates than most LTS distros)

    You both probably already know about Argon, just throwing it out there for other readers.
    I actually did not know about Argon. I did know about Krypton, however. Thanks for sharing this! If Tumbleweed ever gets too unstable for me (which is probably a slim chance, but you never know), then I might switch to Argon.

    I look forward to trying it out and see whether I can replace my current Arch installation with it.

    It's a nice release. I played with it for several days after it first hit beta and didn't have any issues. This will probably end up on some relative's computers once it is GA.
