A lightweight distro like AntiX
on a dinosaur single 2Ghz CPU 1GB laptop with a real keyboard meets my needs well enough most of the time. With ABP, Ghostery, Better Privacy, and of course, NoScript bandwidth and hardware requirements are dramatically reduced!
There's even Linux drivers for legacy hardware that Windows will no longer support... but the old abandonware plays nice with WINE. ;-)
FWIW, I first misread: "Windows 10 is best suited to its traditional PC homebase" as: "Windows 10 is best suited to its traditional PC homeless".
It's liberating not to be tied to advertising, particular vendors, and most especially... the CLOUD. :-P
