Hi, I am 71 and luckily running Linux since about 15 years and now it's 
my only OS
I run Ubuntu / XUbuntu / Linux Mint Rosa.....

I helped lot of relatives (as I'm retired) who used Windows to follow 
the move from XP to 7 and 10 ....

Most of them are now running Linux Mint Rosa because :

 1. By default W10 is completely ignoring EU privacy laws.
 2. Most of them can't afford a new machine to run W10
 3. The graphical environment was too complex for most of them
 4. Older programs (and older hardware ) did not work with W10

By the way, Xubuntu is (IMHO) far less polished than Rosa Mint making it 
somehow touchy for "ordinary" end-users.

PS : I also installed Rosa Mint on a Mini Macintosh because of the end 
of support for this machine by Apple
