18.04 of ubuntu? that's a keeper mainly because it is LTS (Long Term
Support) and you get 5 years of updates... 18.10 is not LTS and you have to
update from it faster as newer ones are released... i forget the support
term on non-LTS releases, though...

we've been using kubuntu here because the KDE interface is pretty similar
to winwhatever and folks trying it out find it more comfortable and
familiar... my 84yo (R.I.P.) father had no problems at all with kubuntu
14.04 when trying it before moving away from Vista... the move from Vista
was due to what turned out to be really cruddy video drivers for the ATI
video card that came with the machine... still had similar problems with it
and kubuntu but we sussed that muckitymuck when we swapped out that card
for NVIDIA...
