This is a good idea, you need a sustainable reason to use Linux.

One of the things I started doing when I made the switch is to have a base Linux box that does nothing except run Virtual Machines (both desktop and server) and separate all my activities into one VM per activity.

So I have a VM for web browsing, another for email, another for business etc. and different machines have different levels of security.

One reason I do this is "speed of recovery" - if there's a disaster all I ever need is my virtual machine backups and a new box and I'm back up and running again super fast. Running things this way also allows for a ton of experimentation, you can build and burn virtual machines and not have to worry about messing something up.

My suggestion is to try all the different flavours.

KDE Neon is one of my favourites that's also great for people switching from Windows desktop.
