Read in my hometown newspaper the other day that the local library is having classes to show people how to install Linux on their computers. A small, very conservative town with not must trust in the Feds or big corporations. That doesn't bode well as these are not tech literate folks by any stretch--that they would prefer free Linux to free Windows.
In years past they offered classes on how to install and use the newest Windows OS. This is the first time I've seen them switching to Linux. The bad news is everywhere if it has made it to the hinterlands of Texas.
Hope they offer free classes and free tech support when those folks want to switch back to Windows. Or when the graphics drivers do not work and all you get is a black screen. Or the programs and games they used all along do not work anymore. Good luck.
