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
