Personally, after decades on Windows, I just find Linux-based OSes more comfortable. I would recommend them not based on "understanding how computers work" or "tweaking everything, getting it just how you like", but on performance, stability, and basic UX principles.
You might learn something along the way, but I feel like most answers to questions like this post poses do more harm than good, propagating the ancient myth that this will "force" you to learn more about computers.

True.
It pains me to say it, but by being unix-based and having a fanatical (and ever forgiving) following of open-source brewers, the:

  • More proprietary than Microsoft
  • For the longest time sleeping on right click
  • Using WinKey (with a different keycode 🤦) for Ctrl
  • Still not having window snapping

-OS might actually provide a better experience in some regards :D
