Can anyone name Linux distributions matching the following criteria:
- Plasma 5 desktop
- Rolling release, LTS strategy, or at least non-disruptive updates from one release to the next
- Security updates at least as reliable and fast as they happen on Debian
- Installation on encrypted filesystem (by the installer, not create LUKS device by hand, etc.)
- Non-free drivers (e.g., WiFi, graphics card) installable from repositories (not download RPM/DEB/etc. and install by hand); extra repositories are fine for this
- Similar to (5), a selection of non-free programs (at least Skype is required, Opera would be nice) available from repositories; extra repositories are fine for this
My results and assessments so far:
- Manjaro looks good, but I'm not 100% sure about (3).
- Netrunner rolling lacks (4), but that can be worked around by using Thus. But as for Manjaro, I'm not sure about (3).
- Kubuntu would have been great, but (2) is in doubt after recent developments.
- Netrunner main edition may be affected if Kubuntu is not continued. Moreover, if choosing the Plasma 5 version, I am not sure about (2).
- KaOS lacks (4). If that is fixed in the future, it may become an option.
- openSuSE Tumbleweed lacks (5), at least for my hardware (on a standard Dell laptop, WiFi and display were both not working out of the box, documentation says something about "the hard way" that has to be taken).
- Debian, Fedora, Korora lack (6). (Korora has lpf-skype, but I was not satisfied with that when I tried last time.)
- I am not sure about (2) for Fedora, Korora, and the non-rolling version of openSuSE. For the latter I am also not sure about (5).
- Mint and Ubuntu lack (1).
