I suggest openSUSE Tumbleweed. I installed openSUSE Leap 15.4 (to check how they
manage the brfs snapshots) and upgraded to Tumbleweed today without a hitch.
They have  a reference implementation of KDE and an excellent documentation.

I have heard good thinks about Void, but I think that openSUSE Tumbleweed will
give you an up to date system easy to maintain with a modern file system with
the ability to easily rollback a faulty update, be it due to a user error or a
problematic package update.

I will continue to maintain Slint, though ;)
