I am a web dev and I use linux for my daily work.
if you are new and switching from windows, you want something that works out of the box. any ubuntu based ones are good. my pick would be linux mint with xfce.
but developing on linux is not about distro it's about customization. so leave cinnamon and other wm and get yourself a tiling wm like i3. learn some vim it helps a lot if you to edit files remotely.
you can manage any coding work easily on linux but if you are a web designer then Adobe is not your friend. you must depend on figma or avocode
