Back from walking the dogs.   T also wanted to mention that linux often

has "?" for many categories.    There are other sites and also distro
support forums that
may have fixes for some issues.  Some issues won't matter to you, and those
that do matter
often have fixes.  Try a live linux distro to check for network, sound, and
graphics problems.

Power management in linux is rarely as good as Windows (linux battery life
much less than
when running Windows).

Older Windows systems often have problems with BIOS versions and secure
boot.
