The best way to find out which distributions are to try several and use the ones you like the most. Welcome to the community!
Yeah, I'm using a combination of Fedora+Gnome on my desktop computer and Arch+i3 on my notebook for a while now and I think I won't change it as long as I don't have a strong reason for it.
Kind of never change a winning horse mentality on my side to be honest, I try to stay productive with what I have.
Trying distros in a vm can be fun but changing your main OS all the time kind of takes momentum out of actually getting things done imho.
Customizing your desktop, installing software, learning how to become fast with your new environment, finding useful tools, deciding if you keep the new distro, possibly changing back.
I personally don't need that all the time as I make money by being productive on my machine, however if some see it as a hobby, why not
