My laptop isn't the fastest thing despite having a i5 processor and 8Gb of RAM. To top it off, I got it secondhand (refurbished, bought it off Amazon) and the Windows 10 license apparently decided to expire about a year after I got the thing (not too happy about that, but I can't return it now). I can still use most features on windows, but that stupid "Activate Windows" watermark is permanently on my screen. I decided I wanted to try Linux and so I downloaded Linux Mint Cinnamon and set up dual boot so that I can switch between Windows 10 and Linux at will. I like it, I like it a LOT. It's sleeker and faster, but still has that familiar Windows layout. Start up takes nowhere near as long, and everything just seems snappier. The fact that something like this is completely free is mind boggling. I plan on eventually upgrading my cheap HDD to an good SSD, so I'll probably stick with just Linux when I do that.
