There's plenty to choose from, nowadays! Careful: the links given (up to Gentoo) are download links.
First, and foremost: Raspberry Pi OS (previously called Raspbian) 64-bit. They ought to have the best hardware support as they make the things themselves, don't they?
Secondly, there's Ubuntu 20.04 (server image, but you can download a desptop if you need one)
And let's not forget Ubuntu Mate 20.04
You can also try Manjaro -I give you the link to the xfce desktop version, CentOS, Kali Linux, DietPi, Gentoo, OpenSuse, or, if you want your Debian straight from the source, try the RaspberryPi4 page on /wiki.debian.org.

If you have a favorite Linux distro, go check their download page(s), there may be more than mentioned above -Lubuntu springs to my mind.

I'm good with the Raspberry Pi OS. I didn't know if it was stable since they still consider it beta. I think I'll go with that one. Thank you Dirk.

Has anyone been able to get WCG work on pi running 64 bit OS? I get this...
rpi4.1
World Community Grid 10/2/2020 5:13:58 PM Message from server: This project doesn't support computers of type aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu

Add this to cc_config.xml but same result...
<alt_platform>aarch64-unknown-linux-gnueabihf</alt_platform>


EDIT:
I added all three of these transformations to the cc_config.xml and it's working...
<alt_platform>arm-unknown-linux-gnueabihf</alt_platform>
<alt_platform>armv7l-unknown-linux-gnueabihf</alt_platform>
<alt_platform>aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu</alt_platform>

I can't find a 64 bit OS distro that allows you to configure the installation and put the OS on a USB SSD. I guess I'll use the SD since it's installed.

And who needs USB boot, when you can boot from M.2 NVMe?
