Ubuntu for convenience, Arch for learning. Pop! OS is apparently nice, especially for gaming, but haven't tried it myself.

I'd advice against derivatives, switching desktop environment is pretty trivial. And desktop environment is often the motivator for fringe distributions - however, having good documentation and plenty of forum threads for even rarest of issues is valuable, which both Arch and Ubuntu do have. Good luck with something like Zorin, if it breaks. Similarly, while Clear Linux is stable and well-optimized, the amount of packages (ready to install software, you generally don't want to install anything not readily in repos) available is lacking.

I'd recommend going Ubuntu first for getting a feel of Linux, maybe switch between Desktop Environments, and then making an Arch install with the DE you enjoyed.
