Tried many Linux distros, but most of it feels buggy and unstable.

Any good and interesting ones to recommend?

Try POP! OS 20.04 LTS, Deepin 20/UbuntuDDE, or Endless OS (https://endlessos.com/home/)

If you've a very old netbook or just want a simple OS that boots up to the cloud/basic internet surfing and simple tasks maybe Chrome OS is for you?

Is the installed memory still 1GB from stock? 1GB RAM meets the minimum requirement for Linux Mint. I would recommend to use Xfce as it is the most lightweight variant of Linux Mint.

Peppermint is excellent for old computers. Low memory footprint and nice gui

Linux distros tend to be unstable at times yeah.

any chance for Linux Mint Cinamon (or other distro) to support USB data tethering (PDANET like) and wifi hotspot sharing (just like in Win10)?

That's the only thing that stop me from completely migrating to Linux.

Help me say goodbye to Microsoft for good.

Hi. Looking for linux distro to run on intel celeron n3060 laptop.

Currently tried Zorin OS lite, but the media playback performance and general internet browsing or anything just a tad bit demands graphic processing, the laptop struggles. It's generally better than win10, but I'm looking for the best.

You may search for lightweight and fast linux / distro for slow / old computer.

There are few available, but you may need to test which one more suitable for you.

Zorin Lite - not quite lite. Slow open youtube, interface was slow when use the start menu search.
Linux Mint XFCE - very well polished interface, much more responsive than Zorin. youtube browsing was faster with chromium but it keeps asking for keyring.
Lubuntu - interface looks very dated, doesn't even ship with good wallpaper. Use less resources compared to Mint XFCE and faster too. Chromium installation from the Discovery software manager was in snap package, didn't ask me for keyring. Stock bluetooth manager is horrible.

Next will try Peppermint OS, MX Linux and Ubuntu MATE.

Interesting. hmm.gif But it looks like I'm going to need to get technical with the OS - open terminal and running back and forth to forums read how to guide if I want it running with all my favorite apps.

Currently on Ubuntu MATE. Uses more resources compared to previous OSes, but web browsing on Chromium is significantly much faster than other. Plus the software center looks better than others.

Edit: tried the cloudready OS. not edge scrolling option... i just can't. guess i am not ready. also, the video playback is not as good as Ubuntu MATE.

ubuntu getting bloatware. the base os getting bigger. try stable distro based slackware or debian stable one.
then linux desktop. some desktop eat more resources than others.
32 bit if available

Salix Xfce. ready to use slackware
Devuan xfce. EXE GNU/LINUX (Devuan with Trinity Desktop)

Raspberry Pi Desktop. debian based with mate.
Q4OS TDE Desktop. Can use MX linux repo for more extra and update app.
MX linux Fluxbox.
