Will it be difficult to use and understand Linux?
Yes, kind of; but you don't have to understand it completely to use it, just like Windows. The first confusing thing you meet is a different presentation of the file-system.

Think about it this way; if Linux were as good as Windows is, people would not be spending money on Windows but move to Linux en-masse. If most of your work is done in a webbrowser, then Linux might be a good idea. It comes with FireFox and feels roughly the same as on Windows.

Will Linux be faster than Winodows 10?
Nah, not very noticeable, until you play a game on Steam. Then Linux is definitely faster at closing the game without warning Smile | :)

There will not be much of a speed-difference, unless you install a very lightweight-version where you have to setup a lot of things manually. The main difference is which applications are available; you may get some Windows-applications to work on Linux using WINE[^], but don't expect everything to work flawless.

If you want to give it a try then I recommend creating a USB-key from which you can boot ubuntu. See Create a bootable USB stick on Windows | Ubuntu tutorials[^].

Ubuntu and Windows can live side-by-side on the same PC, and that's what I'd recommend for anyone who is new to Linux.
