You asked for opinions:

I would not, for 1 second, consider keeping Win10 over your selection of linux

There are painful but good reasons for keeping osx on a macbook. Here a VM running mythtv is (except for a small delay) pretty much normal. I use parallels and Virtual Box.


PS painful reasons include keyboard, mouse, wifi, bluetooth sound don’t work. Apple, for their many faults, do make the trackpad work nicely
