I am so used to GNOME terminal that I find it difficult to use others. But Termite is pretty close
Antergos is the one I voted for, but really, any Arch derivative with a partitioning GUI installer like Calamares and a built-in AUR package manager like yay is just as good. I've had bad luck with Manjaro but all the others seem to work just fine.
Second choice is Fedora Silverblue - I think that's the way a desktop should work. The only reason it isn't my first choice is that the NVidia driver install is still in beta.
