Might be a Mad Hatter as well, some days. Ubuntu destroyed itself with a routine upgrade, so I went for Fedora on the advice of my SysEng S.I.L. It loaded up like a dream. Seems slower than Ubuntu in some regards, such as loading apps and software. Cripes! It took 23 minutes to load Firefox V. 57! Thunderbird loaded right up, though.
Never say never, buuuuut, this is probably the most hack-proof O/S commonly available. DOD uses it for encrypted shit up thru Level Two, which, IIRC is Secret, NoForn. I have two layers of shell on it, and each one requires login. I could have had a third, the KDE Desktop, which has yet another layer. I have all that in an older Fedora distro on a little Gateway Netbook that is my BugOut Puter. Ready to go, with two high-endurance batteries charged, I could stay on it for 16 hours if I had to.
This puter had a fall-back second boot of Win7Pro on it. As I looked through the files to see if I needed to save anything, I noted that I hadn't booted Windows in over two months. No loss there. I don't own a windows machine now. Wife still has one, runs Win 10.3, she doesn't use a fiftieth of the capacity of that O/S.
As I look at Windows, all I see is worry about hacks. Computing shouldn't bring worry.
