I started my Linux journey with OPENsuse about a decade ago. I still used/use windows 10 and Mac os X.
I tried too many distros to list here, except ubuntu, I never tried it, too mainstream for me. I also tried TrueOS (based on freeBSD unix). Debian was nice.I gave each distro about a month of working with it until I finally found a distro that meets all my goals, and that's the Arch based Manjaro that I have been using for over a year now and by no means am an expert in it or linux in general.
I am glad I found this forum from the YouTube videos, those are amazing!
