I put Xubuntu on my 70 year old mother's laptop because Windows kept getting viruses. Anti-viruses are a joke - just ask the family of that guy McAfee had killed. Microsoft created a whole antivirus industry out of incompetence to button their stuff down.

With Xubuntu my mother has never had any issue. Google docs being in the browser it's basically cutout the need to have Microsoft at all.
Occasionally I have issues with Bluetooth headphones not pairing, but on Windows I've occasionally had Windows restart on me while doing something important.
Windows is better than MacOS though, I give you that. It doesn't come any where close to the developer experience on Linux though.
