Rant about Ubuntu using old versions of Gnome 

It seems to me like I'll have to switch away from #Ubuntu. The 21.10 beta is out, and it's using #Gnome 40, so I'm guessing the final version will have Gnome 40 too. I'm already tired of being so far behind not having Gnome 40 on my Ubuntu 21.04 box, and now I'll have to go another 7 months without getting Gnome 41? When Ubuntu 22.04 will Gnome 42 already be out, and Ubuntu just have Gnome 41?

Rant about Ubuntu using old versions of Gnome 

I want a distro that's well supported, reasonably light weight, stable, and lets me easily use vanilla Gnome DE with the latest stable version.

Also I want to be able to use all the Ubuntu related resources online whenever I might have any issues.

Is there an ideal distro out there for me?

@forteller Mint is fully Ubuntu compatible, but it doesn't have a GNOME edition. I suppose you could install it yourself, but then, you could do that on Ubuntu as well. Sparky Linux is based on Debian, and fairly easy IIRC, but it's not quite Ubuntu. I'm sure there's a lot of tiny Ubuntu derivatives with GNOME, but they won't have the same support.
