I've used a great many Linux distributions over the last fifteen years. Based on that experience, I recommend using Pop!_OS for both development and daily use: system76.com/pop

It's a variation of Ubuntu created and maintained by System76, a company that builds Linux-only PCs.

The GUI looks great, the tools are streamlined, and it's fast. It's the most stable and fun distribution, in my opinion.

Thank you for good feedback Ben. I hear this distro but I didn't try. I will try as soon as possible.

Fedora, it's RHEL's Upstream and gives you the best UX IMHO. It's also nearly as old as Debian.

See getfedora.org

Hi Felix,

I did try to Fedora but I have a wifi driver problem. My laptop is HP Envy 15 K202nt. If I fixed this problem I can use Fedora.

Oh, I haven't had one in years on any machine (except for some esoterical Netbooks) to be honest. I couldn't find a quick solution, but simply try asking on Ask Fedora and you'll get help for sure.

I think that Ubuntu 18.04 because have support until 2028 ten years and is really compatible with ruby, php, python, c, gcc, java, npm, javascript and other languages.
