KDE neon – Linux distribution built on top of the latest Ubuntu LTS release

KDE neon is a Linux distribution built on top of the latest Ubuntu LTS release that showcases KDE software exactly as the KDE developers intended it, with no patches and no changes to default settings. It bundles a set of additional software repositories containing the latest versions of the Plasma 6 desktop environment/framework, Qt 6 toolkit and other compatible KDE software.

KDE neon is intended for those who want to experience the latest and greatest KDE software as quickly as possible.

KDE neon supports the open-source Nouveau driver only, which should suffice for normal hardware-accelerated desktop use. The proprietary NVIDIA driver is not supported.

What's a Linux distribution ("distro")?

A distro provides the user with a desktop environment, preloaded applications, and ways to update and maintain the system.

Each distro makes different choices, deciding which open source projects to install and provides custom written programs. They can have different philosophies.

Some distros are intended for desktop computers, some for servers without a graphical interface, and others for special uses. Because Linux is an open source operating system, combinations of software vary between Linux distros.
