Download and install
Download KDE neon from its official website and install it on a USB with a USB Imager tool or use it on a virtual machine. You can also use Quickemu.
KDE neon 5.24 (version I’ve tested) is based on Ubuntu 20.04 with the latest KDE Plasma desktop installed.
You can test the new “Overview” feature of KDE Plasma 5.24 (available on
System Settings -> Workspace Behavior -> Desktop Effects and then press Windows [or Meta key] + W), great KDE apps like Dolphin, Discover (app store), System Monitor, Spectacle, etc.
Install on your system if you want
Finally, if KDE is the desktop you want to use on your computer, you can check
plasma-desktop package on your system repositories or install a Linux system with KDE Plasma installed (like Kubuntu).
