I have been using Fedora Linux for years (current v34) with the Plasma environment.
Very stable, with updates at your discretion.

I run Win10 in the Oracle VM VirtualBox. This is the only way I'll ever use Windows again! I like treating it as "just another program"! The reason I'm even using it at all, is because I am doing a Diploma in Software Development that has a C# stream.

FYI: Hardware spec:
- CPU: Intel i7-11700KF @ 3.60GHz (16x Cores/Threads)
- RAM: 31.2GiB
- Vid: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650
- Storage: SSD 2TB

Even with all this, I still had to configure the VM to allow Win10 access to 8 Cores and 10GB RAM to get any descent level of useful response.

I still remember using MS-DOS 4.0 and then Win 2.11/95. Back then "win.exe" WAS just a program running on MS-DOS. OH, for the good old days Frown | :(
