Trying to decide: linux mint, zorin os 15 or kubuntu 19.10?:

I love a simple yet clean linux distribution. I have the latest mint right now but I really want to install kubuntu or zorin os. Zorin was amazing when i used it under the version 8 and kubuntu looks flat out gorgeous. Since i already have mint, would you recommend i switch to either of those two remaining?

Thanks

Task Recovery (Taskmanager):

Hey there, this is my first post on Reddit and i am not good in English.

While i was gaming Life is Strange 2 i got a full Freeze of my Manjaro and this kept me thinking about something. If you crash a Windows PC the first step of most people is to open Task-Manager STR+ALT+ENTF as i know Linux has many different Task-Managers but the most wont work if your screen is frozen.

So i think i have found a new interesting idea. How about a Task Recovery tool that you can Setup (maybe before gaming) by pressing (STRG+ALT+??) and if your System is struggling hard to keep alive you press the Reset combination (STG+ALT+!!) so all Tasks after the snapshot like games, Firefox and so on…. will be killed if possible and maybe it will save you from a hard reboot. Its like Timeshift but with live processes.

I have no clue if Something like this is easy to create or even useful to normal Linux users.

what do you think about this ? is this useless or half way possible.

Multiboot for external drive. 2 win / 4 Linux.:

I have a question. After reading and looking at alot of guides I’m stuck. Here is what I’m trying to do.

I’m starting Software software development and want to setup test environments. What I’m trying to do is this.

Windows 7 and 10 on main driver (internal) 256gb ssd 3 – 4 Linux distros on External 500 gb ssd Boot menu for when external is plugged in.

Is this possible? I can’t figure out how to get the external drive setup (partition table) so I can have more than 1 distro installed.
