if you want to do REAL work, then use a major distro with simple but stable UI.

If you are using Elementary OS, you may ended wasting more of your time literally using the OS itself by figuring out missing stuff, trying not to break the already fragile GUI, or even compiling supposedly unnecessary things (and get rekt solving dependencies).
hardcore Linux promoter always bait potential users with nice screenshot. But they don't tell you the horror behind it. <--prove me wrong  tongue.gif

Look for the giants like Fedora, openSUSE, or Mint, preferably with Gnome GUI or its derivatives. (I found there are too many distractions with KDE. Its okay if you don't mind some clutters).
Doing everyday activities would be more awesome with latest and greatest stuff, so you may want to look for constantly updated rolling release distro like openSUSE Tumbleweed or Arch, ..well, if you are okay with updates knocking your door on daily basis though.

Disclaimer:
This is just my personal experience and opinion. eOS gives me headache on my hardware and usage pattern, but not others. so YMMV. 
Im currently using Gnome on openSUSE Tumbleweed on desktop (and 13.1 on servers) , but the real reason I like openSUSE is for its management toolset that I think is better than other distro.

Thank you for the explanation bro. I think I will use Fedora since it's have Gnome 3 by default desktop & works great with my working environment since Linux will be my main OS at home wink.gif Btw, in Gnome 3, can we move the dock to bottom?

Yeah, he's absolutely right. If you want to do real work and be productive, better not waste your time ricing and just have fully functional desktop environment. You can rice when you have the time and have already masters the basics of using Linux. I still have an i3 desktop still waiting to be riced. I just can't be bothered to commit myself to something that won't be of any use to me in the long run.

And yes, you can. I personally use MMOD panel to move it at the bottom and use a lot of its neat features. https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/898/mmod-panel/

While that does look pretty nice (but still too many things on the desktop for me), but maybe it is time for you to switch platform, to Linux now that you're here.

Nvm, i already dual boot my laptop with Windows 10 and Ubuntu.
Although i rarely log in to Ubuntu because of brightness problem.

I know ubuntu is not really 'linux' but i think any distro is fine as long as you have the skills to customize it

There's nothing such as "not really linux". It's just a matter of preference and freedom of choice.

Its' my home desktop monitor, so 2550x1440 on 27in doesn't need HiDPI but for those with 4K displays on laptops, Gnome 3 and Gnome 3 apps work well with HiDPI, it's the web browsers usually though that need tweaking.
