Whatever floats your boat. I started out with Ubuntu myself, but grew tired of bugs. They weren't "user friendly" at all. :)

Yes, this. Buggy unstable systems are not 'user friendly'. I started with Debian back in the late 90's. When Ubuntu came along, I thought "cool, Debian with shinier newer software". But it was always kind of not quite there, always a work in progress, always just a bit sloppy. The whole GnomeShell then Unity thing caused me to jump ship, and I came back to straight up Debian. Buggy, unstable, sloppy software is not 'user friendly', no matter how shiny and new the programs are, or how many options they take away from you, or the happy GUI settings programs. BUT...

Whatever floats your boat. :)

My boat lost a engine, namely my graphics card broke and I now have to rely in the AMD APU only, with very basic graphics.

I don't care for the pretty KDE look anymore, it's pretty but to slow on my system.

I installed Lubuntu 18.04. It was so easy, but I resisted the urge to suck my thumb.
