Yeah, i've always had good luck when i was using a third party distro KDE centric built on debian, but always varying results with KDE directly over debian. maybe except KDE 3.5 .
That being said, i've been a little out of the KDE loop as of late, they've gone through so many transitions in the last few years. i just spent the last few days catching back up. KDE Neon looks really promising right now for a simple KDE-centric distro on a stable base. Which is weird given that LTS ubuntu is built on debian testing... Looking at what is going on with Neon, i can see completely that plasma 5 is totally stable as of right now, and i couldn't believe the 300-400mb foot print. that's so low, and something KDE had been promising for some time now, its really great to finally see it.
However, that just wasn't the case for me, i was looking at 900mb idle at boot(with various other issues). right now i have LXQT working without issues for me, and on a debian base i like. If i run into issues i'll look at KDE neon next.
KDE Neon is based on ubuntum i think, so im not interested on it, debian is my girl
yeah, KDE is around 900mb idle at boot, I bought some RAM (4GB), and now i can work propertly, becouse 2GB nowdays is litle memory to work in KDE.
I choose KDE as my default desktop, it gives me all i need, I try before XFCE, Mate (I'd love caja was based on dolphin), Unity, Gnome and all of them doesnt fit my needs when comparing with KDE. I picked KDE mainly becouse two reasons, dolphin explorer (Which is ultimate easy explorer) and Akonadi framewrok (which is ultimate e-mail services). Also becouse its all an integrated enviroment and has a long life project continuity.
Other thing, I was using stable, but now Ive changed my mind, and I think its better and more funny to use testing (from sixth/eigth moth or so, testing is ready to enjoy, before it can be too unstable), you've last updates and your system works better (last improvements).
Now, im a Kde+ testing man
