Are you "married" to Linux? TrueOS (formerly PC-BSD) still provides a KDE4 desktop and from what I understand, FreeBSD is more efficient esp. on older hardware. From what I've seen you basically only give up Google Chrome and Spotify plus a few similar apps, and get to use a slightly older FireFox version. In return you get out-of-the-box support for ZFS. Setting that up with copies=2 on the crucial datasets is great for less litterate users who wouldn't think of ever backing anything up.
