I never would have predicted that Windows would have gotten so bad that my own wife would choose to abandon it, especially given her disdain for Apple.
But the OS world is not one of strict duality. And upon my suggestion, she agreed to Ubuntu, convinced with my recommendation (in turn based upon my own recent experiences with it).
The process was essentially the same as the above linked post, so I won’t go into detail again here. Instead, I’ll just share this picture, and again vouch for Ubuntu with yet another successful experience:
If Windows 10 has made you pine for an adult operating system, and Apple isn’t your cup of tea, then consider the latest Linux distros. They’re far more user-friendly than they used to be.
