So have moved to linux permanently (for the time being :-)
Now, I am currently using Pop-OS because well it has treated me the best upon initial install. I have 4 screens and some distros just have trouble with that. Pop-OS on the other hand just kill it.
Havind said that I am intruiged by the lightweight desktop movement with something like AwesomeWM. This is essentially controlled by the keyboard primarily.
I am intruiged especially as it seems it isn't a destructive process. You can always go back to the original Pop-OS desktop environment.
I shall have to investigate and explore the possibilities.
Till next time,
