I'm new to Linux, still learning how Linux in general works, but before that I need some smart opinion from a person who knows this stuff already, so my question is very simple, what is the most basic linux distro that I can start working on right away [mostly some noob web developing stuff] but it has these qualities:
- Runs KDE
- Secure [private]
I heard that Ubuntu was not that bad, and then I see that they send my search history to Amazon servers, wtf? [wtf Canonical?] so, its not private, not cool, then I realise kde Kubuntu looks nice, but Im not sure if Canonical has anything to do with that distro, so Im scared, then I started researching centOS, because they say its a clone of RHEL and rhel is pretty stable and private, but then I hear that it lags behind rhel for couple of months with security patches, and plus its server oriented distro, so yeah, theres that, and I look at Fedora too, but they say it has cutting edge software, but does that mean it has higher chances for security holes and its maybe complex to use cause of that?
So my question is simple, is there a distro, that is not greedy for money and sends my stuff from my pc to some other servers, its not like Im doing something really important, like rocket science, but I still value my privacy, it just feels strange if somebody has access to my data , wtf is that? a distro that doesnt require me to be Linus Torvalds to install it and operate on day to day basis, and that is not resource hungry and has a nice community of developers...
And is there some distro, that is just developed by few cool developers, not owned by any company, just there for people to use?
If you read this novel, thank you, and sorry...but your opinion from your experience would mean a lot to a noob like me, thanks, have a nice day!
