A low-key good experience for Thor-oughly new penguins: Elementary OS 6, aka Odin

You might want to look at Ninite.com. It's been years since I last used it, but I remember that you are presented with a long list of popular applications (such as VLC, 7zip, Firefox, Magic ISO etc etc) against tick boxes. Simply select the applications you want and proceed to download a single installer that installs all the applications you chose. I seem to recall that it just installs the applications and not some of the cruft that a native installer will dump on you if you neglect to uncheck a tick box.

Other readers here may have a more up-to-date opinion of Ninite* that they might care to share.

*EDIT: corrected Minute back to Ninite - an autocorrect error.
