This wouldn'​t be an issue on a desktop without wireless networking, of course.   * Debian testing - No live environment,​ but easy install.

   * KDE Neon - Same as Kubuntu in that it constantly re-asks for wifi password, even though I've supplied it a zillion times. Also missing most software out-of-the-box. Nothing to distinguish it otherwise.   * KDE Neon - Same as Kubuntu in that it constantly re-asks for wifi password, even though I've supplied it a zillion times.

   * Gecko. Got the STATIC plasma version. Boots live (unlike '​real'​ OpenSuse), but is **extremely** slow to do so. So laggy when it finally finishes booting that it's practically unusable. Tried again using USB3 instead of USB2, but speed is still poor. Software reasonably modern (LibreOffice 6.0.4.2, for example, though '​real'​ OpenSuse is up to 6.1.3.2). KDE continually prompting for wifi password even so, just like with Kubuntu and Neon.   * Gecko. Got the STATIC plasma version.
