Elementary OS

OpenSUSE with Gnome is still my workhorse, but my new casual driver laptop is using ElementaryOS - https://elementary.io/

It has an Ubuntu LTS base, so it's stable., and it comes with just a few applications (that I'm not crazy about) installed. (I find Midori to be slow, and I don't have much need for local mail/cal apps right now).

The Pantheon desktop is GTK+, but not Gnome Shell.
The file browser is nice, a fork off nautilus.
Nice Human Interface Guidelines (https://elementary.io/developer)




For more in depth, you can always research on Distrowatch http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=elementary
