I do also tend to think that a few bad decisions (that mostly can be
fixed by configuration) are not enough reason to change distribution.
- Not, when the other distributions do worse (which I tend to think
focusing on my personal needs).

So far, I always changed theme to one that has the buttons on the
right as I don't yet remember how to move them to the left by heart.

As far as I have read (not my own experience), BTRFS is still
considered unstable and I have seen a few benchmark results where
BTRFS was faster only in a few of the use cases. From what I have
interpreted, Ext4 could be still the best choice for allround-use, but
I am not into details - there might be pretty good reasons for pushing
BTRFS - however, this is off-topic here.
