The problem right now is that the occasional failures (regarding the home theater setup) are in direct line of sight, and she even mentioned that "the new OS migration didn't seem to be going as planned".

0) Thunderbird was an important hurdle because she uses that for email (I've figured out my prior issues with it).

1) She also does occasional excel work (nothing real fancy), but Libre Office handles that pretty well.

2) The only thing really keeping me from putting Linux on her box is the selection hot-key thing with regards to the number keypad. It annoys me, so I'm positive it will annoy her.

The only other thing she really does on her desktop is cruise the web.

Was your wife's problem a hardware thing? I can't imagine having a catastrophic software problem with Linux, because it's not - well - Windows 10. My new Dell laptop came with Win10 on it, but I never booted it that way. I immediately put Linux on it, and it's been quite a nice experience.
