I decided over a year ago to dump Windows on my laptop (which is my primary computer currently), and have found myself distro hoping over that last year. Ubuntu, Manjaro, Fedora, Debian, Pop_OS!, just to name a few. Each one presented me with some form of issues.
Ubuntu - I faced performance issues, but also had issues with installed software suddenly going missing and not working.
Manjaro - Constantly having issues with installed programs not having icons, and some programs the font just would not display properly no matter what I tried.
Fedora - Wasn't too bad, but experienced issues with some updates.
Debian - I couldn't for the life of me get my wireless working. It was probably something I did wrong on my end, but it was just too frustrating.
Pop_OS! - Similar to Manjaro with font and icons, but also with updates having issues.
Between some of these installs, I had put Linux Mint on my system. Each time I had Mint installed, everything just worked. Streaming shows was flawless with the codecs installed right away, never an issue with missing icons or text not showing correctly. Never an issue with updates. But I guess why I kept leaving it is that I always see Linux Mint touted as being for beginners. I'm no guru with Linux or anything, but I felt like I wanted to use a more... I don't know, intermediate system? But every distro I used seemed to cause me trouble.
Because of that, Linux Mint is where I've decided to stay. It works the way you expect it to, and there's hardly ever any issues that are major.
The only issue I seem to have occasionally, is that my wireless connection for some reason will stop working. It shows I'm connected, it seems like it should work, but I can't access anything online. This usually only happens when I'm using my laptop on battery power. I've tried a fix of changing the wifi power save feature, but it still seems to happen every once in a while. I just make sure I keep a command handy to reset the network manager when that happens and it fixes the issue. For those curious:
systemctl restart network-manager.service
Aside from that small inconvenience, Linux Mint just works so well for me. The team are doing an excellent job with this distro, and because of that, I intend to stay!
