I agree win7 (as you mentioned) has the edge over linux should you want to turn it into an entertainment box. Sure linux can do the movies etc but it's lighter on the games.
- that is guessing being a bit over 14 years old you're probably not into fast action shoot-em-up games... there's some great strategy / thinking games out there (that btw also don't need triple-quad-GPU's and nitrogen cooled CPU's).

Plus linux is more fiddly to set up if you switch between different monitors (TV's) with different specs - a lot less automagic than windoms - same too for add-ons like universal remotes, paddles, joysticks, x-ray goggles...

Linux is great if you want to spend half of your time on the box fiddling with it, windows 7 better if you just want to sit back, plug stuff in and use it. (in fact even better than XPsp3 when it comes to just plug something in and use it.)
And win-7 beats win-10 in that no worries whenever it updates of "will it or wont it work" - notwithstanding waiting an hour for the update to finish to find out (during which you cant turn it off, or say watch a movie or play a game.)

7 is the only sensible choice if all you want to do is use it for the very reason you bought it for.
This internet thing is amazing! Letting people use it: worst idea ever!
