If you want to cut nose off to spite your face it is. Same with MAC OS.
MacOS isn't relevant to this discussion. It only runs on Macs (and I'm not a fan of it, either).
Apps on Windows out number Linux and MAC apps 15 or 20 to 1.
So? With the exception of those who like Microsoft Office/Outlook, how many people use something other than cross-platform apps (Firefox, LibreOffice, Thunderbird, Google Chrome, Wireshark, etc.)?
Plus Linux cannot begin to exploit new chipset and CPU features like 10 was written to support. LInux on old XP hardware might have some merit but on state of art hardware it is not a wise move.
I have Win 10 Pro and Linux Mint 17.3 on the HP laptop I'm using to type this. Mint supports all hardware other than the touchscreen, which I don't use anyway. And Mint is faster than Windows, at least subjectively.
