Which Linux to Use?

Hello all:

Brand new here, I did a CS degree 25 years ago and since have mainly concentrated on sales engineering, so new to this area. Getting started with the tutorials, and it says to use Linux, does anyone know which distribution is best? I am deploying an Azure VM, and my choices are:

Red Hat Enterprise
Ubuntu Server
CentOS Based
Debian 12 “Bookworm”
Ubuntu Minimal
Oracle Linux
AlmaLinux
Debian 10 “Buster”
SUSE Enterprise Linux 15

Thanks for any input!
