One of my grandmothers (until she passed) was on linux for about 8 years. I'd update/upgrade about every year or so. It ran chrome, and Wine ran the couple of windows 95 era games she used.

My other grandmother has been on Chome OS for almost as long. Which has been another great option. I do wish that Google had better support for installing/running full Chrome OS on more generic hardware. I find it's just about the best option all around for the novice computer user.
