Discussion on: Which Linux should I install being a React developer

My 2c. I would not recommend anything running Gnome. The Gnome developers have been copiously messing it up for years now, removing simple things that the community didn't want removed.

I would suggest any system that runs KDE, as it's currently the most advanced Desktop Environment available. KUBUNTU would be a good one to start with, perhaps on version 18.04 LTS so that you don't have to go upgrading it any time soon.

hmm I have the same kind of fear about GNome containing OSes. Also if you can read my edit of my experiences to install 3 OS and failed at it and if you can help me with it, it would be amazing

Also just yesterday night I booted with AntergOS it didn't let me dual boot saying it needs a GPT partition. Then I tried Solus OS and it didn't even recognize itself on the disk. so then I made Fedora bootable and installed it but just after that since I had to turn on the Legacy support on, my Windows 10 disappeared from the grub or boot options.
So then I again live boot with the pendrive to check whether my Windows drives are there on the disk or not. Then I used my Windows Recovery disk and it installed it in a span of 4 hours so now I'm typing to you this on my Microsft Edge Browser (while chrome downloads in background).
I think my dream of starting the development on Linux systems will be shattered so much.
I read articles/blog regarding solving this online but windows needs UEFI method to boot and nothing else.
