If you choose easy to use distro it wont be hard, but don't assume things work like they do on windows. I installed linux mint on my dads pc, and i would say that it seems really easy to use. I may not be best for telling that, because i dont use mint myself, this is my first impression of mint, i use gentoo that is one of hard to use distros.
On desktop usage linux can often be faster, and doesnt slow down with time like windows.
If you want to play games then it will usually perform worse, and many games need tweaks to run good. Not recommended if you want it easy. Its getting better with steam play proton, many games run good out of box, but still many have problems or dont work at all.
