Looking to ditch Windows

Looking to ditch Windows:

I have a basic HP laptop, i3 processor and 4gb RAM running Win10. It is fairly slow. I am thinking of trying Linux, which would be totally new to me. My basic needs are just browsing the internet, typing up a few documents, and having some music manager like musicbee.

I would absolutely have to have VMware Horizon Client so that I can dial in to work.

Even though I know nothing about Linux, I have worked in IT since the DOS and Windows 3.1 days so I am comfortable with computers.

Where should I start?
