Fast-Nop33836170dArch Linux sounds like the best choice if your goal is to learn about Linux rather than just using it. Be prepared that even the installation is not "point and click", but involves reading up a lot on the (very good) Arch wiki.
Or you could first go with Manjaro. This is based on Arch, but more user friendly and easy to install. Then you could switch to Arch later.
Fast-Nop33836170dThe advantage of first going with Manjaro and then changing to Arch is that you will know from Manjaro what should work with your hardware, and if it doesn't, it's not a distro problem, but a user problem that you can figure out. Also, you'll have become a bit more familiar with Linux by then already.
DevLivesMatter2212170dManjaro CE, i3 or bspwm.
I mean... if you don't want to stay close to Windows UX-wise, better roll a tiling WM directly.
It'll be enough for you to learn, then switch to pure Arch and build your own.
homo-lorens7236158dI third Manjaro, it brings the simplicity of Arch but has an installer. Don't try to install Arch early on, the wiki is excellent but it does rely on some entry level Linux experience which is pretty hard to acquire before installing the OS.
