I use Ubuntu 20.04 and Windows 10 dual-boot for desktop PC and have a macOS laptop :P
I am sure it can be helpful for a job or else to be familiar with all three major operating systems.

Apart from that, I can also recommend Arch Linux and Linux Manjaro.

I hope that helps you with your decision!

I have been using Debian for a month now, it's been nice. I had to use the image with the "non-free firmware" but that was just a small detail. Every package I needed was in the official repositories, that made the setup easy. I did had to spend some time (1 hour) to customize the desktop environment, because the default settings were just horrible. Now that everything is installed and have a nice theme for the desktop, I no longer feel the need to look for another OS.

I decided to use Ubuntu, it has everything I need for now, my development stack is easy to install so I think I'm going to love Ubuntu

I used to have it and I liked that it's so ubiquitous that it's easy to find help specific to it. I believe it has its own StackExchange site, unlike most distributions (mind you, in most cases, Q&As apply to most distributions).

PS4 is my main driver as well for playing games. I just wish there were more RTS games to play on consoles because I enjoy playing those games too. Computers are still best for that you just can't beat a mouse and a keyboard.

Every OS has some form of vulnerabilities and Windows is still #1 for gaming on computers.
