Willy, you will find that Linux distros are like beer and not like
woman: you can enjoy two at once and even flip flop between them!

I very much recommend that users of KDE use GNOME for a while and vice
versa, and to distro hop a bit. I like finding new features to suggest
to my 'usual' software, and I like knowing how to use software in
general, not specific applications.
