I may have struck a nerve.
Addressing certain points:
1. Nope, I'm not a normal user. According to some, I'm not even a normal
2. Admittedly, the actual use of a Linux system - or any other - isn't
necessarily problematic so long as the user is in fact simply running
programs, without concern for system configuration and administration.
Yes, my 10-year old grandson also "uses" my Linux machines, which is to
say that he knows how to start Minecraft and run a browser.
3. My tale had really only one problem with Linux, i.e. the
creation/configuration of the installation media, and that problem was
due to a motherboard issue with the media creation software. Using
different (more up to date?) software resolved that issue.
I'm still working on a few minor problems with Ubuntu, nothing serious.
I think the audio configuration can be improved a bit, but performance
is certainly adequate now.
Best regards to all, thanks for all the replies.
