I will get a new laptop for my apprenticeship today. I'm not sure if I should install Manjaro GNOME, Manjaro KDE or Fedora Workstation. What are your recommendations?

    @leon3103 That's where you are wrong. Don't follow devherd mindlessly. Try and then decide. Windows works.

    @Cyanide I tried and I don't want it anymore :D

    With Gnome you will have fancy animations everywhere, but you could go for a more productive DE and use a tiling WM!

    Use what you are used to, unless you have any particular aversions (systemd, etc.).

    Id say Fedora or OpenSUSE for new laptops or any number of the build your own distros if you know what you are going to be working with.

    I was distro-hopping a long time before I installed Manjaro KDE. Never looked back

    Dude just google the options and decide what you like best. Just because someone here prefers KDE doesn't mean you will prefer it.

    Manjaro+i3 (and install KDE alongside in case you get frustrated).

    Arch (KDE). Require more time to setup but easier to troubleshoot after when you know what's up. But like others said, for a new laptop (with decent specs) I would probably stick to Windows.

    What’s the apprenticeship? If you’re being given a laptop by your employer I think it’s unlikely you’ll be able to put whatever OS you like on it.

    @SSDD im doing it as a Specialist Application Development (Google translate)

    I get it by my employer but in our company everyone can put their own OS and to a given price point co figure the laptop ourself :)
