You should not look for the OS, you should look for Linux drivers which are compatible with your device.

I would recommend using an up to date distribution, that will have the latest linux kernel, and therefore, latest firmware (drivers). I would recommend Fedora, but if you're a little more advanced, you may be able to try Arch. Avoid distros with old kernel/firmware, like Debian.

I like fedora. Arch looks better but I'm new to linux and I need something that comes precnfigured  security wise for now.

I tried a fedora  and manjaro live disk. Fedora gave me errors and manjaro worked ok.

trying to find something that doesn't record user data like windows10.

Keep reading stories about some linux distributions spying on users and sending out information.

openSUSE Tumbleweed is a tested rolling release that comes with basically all desktops already at time of installation, and some 10.000+ software packages available in online repositories. Did you consider this?

I tied the leap 15.2 beta and had some errors on the live version about AMD-vi: Unable to write to IOMMU perf counteI.

I'm  looking for something stable for daily use

I have a Thinkpad E595 with AMD Ryzen 7 3700U CPU and integrated Radeon Vega Mobile (Picasso).

 

I am running Linux Mint with Cinnamon as Desktop. If you come from Windows, Cinnamon isn't too different. 

 

Mint was originally based on Ubuntu and still uses Ubuntu code base and repositories. Opposed to Fedora (which I use on my business laptop), Mint is based on Ubuntu Long Term Stability releases which means support for several years, whereas Fedora updates about every 6 months. I have installed Mint on my notebook and that was it, it just worked. 

 

You can get a Linux Mint Live ISO from here: https://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=3832

@1Chip: Leap 15.2 is still Beta (although entering RC phase today)

 

It would be great if you could report the issue on bugzilla.opensuse.org 

 

As Tumbleweed is a *tested* rolling release it is pretty stable, and in the rare case something is not working after an upgrade, you can boot into an older snapshot and roll back to this (Thanks to BTRFS filesystem). I use it on my workhorse since some years....

 

But back to your issue: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1549939 claims it is not really an issue..... (and this is on an older 4.15 kernel). Please check if this is the same issue
