Need help/advise: ๐Ÿ’ป Anyone's experience with Linux on MacBooks - I've had a lot of tried, including Arch, Ubuntu, Cent and probably more I can't remember.

๐Ÿ”ดThe issue is always the Desktop manager / UI / Window manager: either it's too ๐Ÿ‘น ugly, or too heavy(read Ubuntu default).

Want to find the ultimate compromise with reasonable support for hardware, yet with high usability.

Things like multi-touch gestures are a bonus๐Ÿ”ฅ(I know there's extra bins I can install for that)

I don't mind something more to configure, but would rather stick with apt-get and similar rather than having to manually build everything ๐Ÿ˜‰

As you probably understood by now - I need something close to MacOS yet Linux based ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    @d3vnu11 like 2-finger scroll and zoom? Doesn't all modern distros support that?

    I’m with @liammartens
    If you want something linux based that has a beautiful UI then deepin is the way to go.

    If it's about the Desktop, you shouldn't switch the Distro, but the Desktop Environment. Check out the following ones:

    1. xfce (also my choice)
    2. mate
    3. kde
    4. gnome
    5. lxde or lxqt
    6. budgy
    7. cinnamon

    @binop #1, 3, 5 are the ugly / cumbersome ones from what I remember. I wouldn't mind it on a desktop maybe, but not on a MacBook- will look at the others
