to see what is available.

I haven't looked at distrowatch in a while, but I'm surprised to see MX Linux at the top. It sure has come a long way.

If you have high speed Internet and a couple of test computers, I suggest trying the different desktop environments like Xfce, LXQt, KDE, GNOME and MATE.

If you are going to use a linux distro long term, you might consider distros that support the LTS model (Long Term Support). For my needs, Lubuntu LTS has served me over 6 years with no issues whatsoever. I just upgraded all my computers in the house to Lubuntu 20.04 LTS.
