Well, different distro, Linux Mint. Linux allows you to use old hardware current Windows not capable of running on, they said. Well, after replacing a Windows 10 bookkeeper's machine I have tried to make an email only machine for some pensioner friends of mom.
The then current Mint distro froze on the integrated nVidia with the new Open Source driver in the distro after about ten minutes of uptime. The nVidia driver for the chip required some kernel extensions, going down on the install just this package and compile a kernel rabbit's hole, welcome to the endless cycle.
So I have went back to the five generation older Mint distro, and it mostly worked. After a restart, always worked. So they can use it to this day, 130 km away, no other problems. Security updates out of question, so nothing breaks the machine - till TLS4 or something like that.
