Basically, which linux distro is the best for a non-power user? Someone who wants to be able to get up and running without having to learn how to manage the OS using the cli.

Quick example: When I install a new OS, the first thing I want to do is install Brave. That should be as easy as “click on this thing, type in brave, select Brave, install.”

    I tried openSUSE Tumbleweed, and neither Brave nor ThinLinc Server showed up in the YaST search.

      go to Yast -> Software Repositories and add the Brave Repo. Now you can install it in Yast Package Manager.

      You can also install it with “opi” from terminal: “sudo opi brave”

        This makes it a nonstarter. I can do that, but my wife isn’t going to, so then she’s stuck waiting on me.

        Thank you for the insight, though. I like the thought of a system that keeps itself up to date, so I may play with this some for myself.
