Mint has so far been super stable for me. What's misbehaving for you?
The biggest issue I have is Firefox crashing on me about every other day, usually after a YouTube binge. I had the exact same problem with Chromium when I used to run that. I think in a single week of running Mint, I'll use Alt-F2 the same number of times I used the XKILL command the entire time I ran Crashbang.
I haven't had a Windows box since XP. Seeing as how I don't use computers for anything fancy, I don't really miss it. Well, SD card, printer, and scanner capabilities without a hassle might be nice. Other than that though, I don't really miss it.
The Windows 10 update borked my Linux partition. I was excited to install a new multi million dollar OS over a volunteer one but I shouldn't have been. I was using some version of Mint for everything except scanning, including GIMP for image editing. I liked it just fine for web browsing but that's about it. Settings were at least less stupid than Windows.
I've been a Mac user since OS 9 but got scared my 2008 Macbook would shit the bed so I bought a cheap Dell cause that was what I could afford this go round. If someone wants to trade a recent Macbook of some kind for paintings, sculptures and a cheap Dell I can make that happen.
I just swapped ubuntu for fedora on my macbook air and the setup for that was super, super easy. With ubuntu I needed refind, but fedora shows up right in the OSX bootloader. On my desktop I use separate drives so I don't know how fedora plays with Win 10, but I think it is also pretty easy.
If you want easy install the big distros are probably your best bet. A live usb might help you with fix/recovery as well, including looking at the partitions and seeing what's going on (fedora's install has pretty straightforward tools for this.)
