    More users, more supports and more software packages:
    I personally prefer Ubuntu for laptop which has a GUI built on purpose.
    Second is Oracle Linux (Redhat Linux fork) which provides a very long term official support.

    I prefer Ubuntu and Debian. Although basically all Linux are the same stuff.
    Together with the previous recommendations about search engines, I would recommend having a support to save the own code, notes, interesting links, and so on.

    There are portable Snipetts softwares very useful with search facilities. I use CherryTree:

    after the years I have accumulated a very long tree with notes and code for many different things. I cannot live without it. :p

    I still prefer Ubuntu for my laptop. I like that it has a user-friendly graphical interface, a wide range of available software, and a large and active community.
