I love your thinking but I must decline.
Everyone runs their own course, however since Windows 10 is known to hundreds of people for being as buggy as sh*t, then it would be a campaign to dual-boot to linux so they can still keep Windows.
However, they would have to learn a new operating system, and how it works, etc. Most pick Zorin OS, but that is kind of laggy too. Linux Mint is also laggy in some ways too.
And people would probably actually not want to use something on unstable versions. Debian would probably be the hit, unfortunately, unless they could trust Ubuntu which everyone actually probably will.
With that being said, to keep it alive, we need an Ubuntu Cinnamon flavor and possible an Ubuntu Zorin desktop, in order to make users switch to Ubuntu.
And remember, Ubuntu flavors still count as using Ubuntu because you are running Ubuntu, just with a different desktop.
