I worked for a company that used Microsoft for all its servers and workstations(5000+). During this time I played with SUSE and Ubuntu at home. After retiring and Microsoft non-support for machines that were only a few years old, I decided to move over to Ubuntu for all my home. Currently running 8 server and 3 desktop machines. I even run Dotnet8 on Linux. Other than TurboTax, I have no need for Windows. I have only occasionally had an issue but usually it my own fault for a miss-configuration. I have had no issues with hardware or software, in fact keeping things up-to-date is much easier than with Window(less reboots). My current desktop took about 50 - 60 seconds to get login and another 30 after login to being able to use it with windows. On Ubuntu, the boot is about 30 second and after login I can start using almost immediately(finish loading background tasks in 20 seconds).
