When I bought my new laptop several years ago, I chose Ubuntu as its first distro even though I usually run Debian. For one thing, Ubuntu has an excellent installer. Second, they seem to do more testing on cutting-edge hardware, so I thought the chances were better that hardware on a brand-new laptop would be supported.
Ubuntu has been working fine for a couple of years, but with 21.10
("Impish Indri") it took a precipitous downturn.
