@sondering67 Strongly suggest stock Ubuntu for a beginner. Most of the documentation, installation guides, easy-installers, etcetera etcetera are Ubuntu-centric, and it does put an emphasis on ease of use.
Go for one of the Long-Term support versions: 18-04 is still a good bet. Lots of software will target specifically an LTS version and non-LTS does have its gotchas.
