Installed the lxqt iso, removed lxqt and installed plasma, OpenRC.
Been running this for a couple months now, everything works out of the box both on my laptop an my desktop.
No complaints at all. It's as close as it gets to the perfect distribution to me.

After 17 years using exclusively GNU/Linux and tried almost everything it's difficult to believe that you could still be surprised.

The surprise is named Artix Linux

I receveid as gift a 2015 HP laptop with a problematic Broadcom BCM43142 wireless chip.

But it wasn't the only requirement I had.

The laptop has an ssd so for partition I use xfs due to it's reduced write cycles which save the disk.

I was looking for something able to install in a plain UEFI way without need of tricks like a separate boot partition cause Grub is unable to work on xfs file systems and it needs an ext.../reiser... partition.
Something able to install on UEFI Fat 32 boot partition and run only using / and separate /home partitions formatted as xfs.

Artix is the only one systemd free which achived the required result.

And, at least as live, broadcom chip was working out of the box; after installation on bare metal it stopped working.
Problem solved with a trick, booted the live and activated the connection a cp -fR /lib/modules and a cp .fR /lib/firmwre make it works also on installed system.

Really light on resources in LxQt version on UEFI hardware it on idle the bare system runs live with 275MB ram, on Bios hardware booted from the same usb stick the system on idle runs with 175MB ram.
This also highlight as "new" technology like UEFI and systemd has the solely scope to convince not IT savvy to toss still perfect functioning pc's craftly wasting higher resources for nothing.

The only regret is the lack of, at least, an i686 iso.
It will save a lot of 1 or 2GB x86 machines still perfectly functioning.

Thanks indeed Artix!

Installed the MATE/LXDE 2019-06 ISO. Everything works out of the box, even encrypted root, and the system is FAST! The default application set covers most average users' needs, as it contains a balanced set of internet, audio, video, graphics and office applications. Should one need something more specialized, s/he can use a non-community edition which installs a basic LXQt desktop and build up from there.
Artix has got 4 repositories which correspond to the Arch ones as follows: [system]->[core], [world]->[extra], [galaxy]->[community] and [lib32]->[multilib], plus the testing and staging versions (aptly named [gremlins] and [goblins]). The [system] repo contains everything from [core] and [world] most from [extra]; [galaxy] contains everything that in [community] depends on systemd, plus some more packages. The Arch repos (minus [core]) are by default enabled and available, to supply missing packages and of course the AUR is also at our disposal.
OpenRC is fast and reliable, in fact all 3 init systems Artix supports are more secure than systemd, which has got numenous confirmed CVEs and suffers from scope creep.
The forum is very friendly and almost all issues raised there are marked as [SOLVED]. The same applies to their Telegram group.
The MATE/LXDE community ISO is based on the GTK toolkit, but the developers have done an excellent job integrating QT-based applications into the pleasant, easy-on-the-eyes, default dark look of the desktop, using a home-brewed theme that achieves a flawless uniform appearance. Having tested the Plasma/LXQt version too, QT-based this one, I can tell the same uniform look also applies there.
Updates roll out fast, only a few hours after Arch. Kudos!
