Fair enough, I 100% always get dogpiled with "it's just you, it's all perfect for me and the rest of us!" when criticising the usability of Linux on the desktop (or laptop in this case), I must just be really really unlucky I can certainly use it and in a pinch sometimes fix things in source code but I just always seem to want things from it that aren't really fleshed out on the platform and that take more time out of my day/week to get going, and the older you get the more you realise how precious time is. Then I mention it and in most cases would just get "well why do you even want fingerprint reader support anyway? Just type a password, stupid!" and to me that kind of response (you're using your computer wrong!) is part of the problem and ironically smells a bit of Apple No apology required! I do tend to come across as inept with it (I also like to put myself in the shoes of those who don't have the computer literacy that I have and... let's just say I think tablets are the future!) but yeah I just always seem to want it to do things that other users aren't so bothered about, so I constantly stumble across things like the fingerprint reader issue where it's sort of half done and poorly documented and most Linux-y types will be saying it's just a gimmick and you shouldn't be using it etc. Thinkpads are actually renowned for good Linux support and I did factor that in (along with ex corporate refurb Thinkpads being outstanding value for money) it just seems so far that fingerprint reader support (though this is just an example of *many* things that make me think "this is only half finished", it's an easy one as I've been battling with it today) generally aren't that great overall. In my eyes. Then we have the issue, which is not Linux's fault, when you think "right, I'll play some Fallout 4 now. Oh... I have to boot into Windows". So you end up needing it anyway. (There's WINE, but I usually find that's a rabbit hole of glitches of its own!) I think the main thing is, I'm not seeing enough of an advantage of Linux to make the sacrifices. So it only feels like making a bunch of sacrifices for no benefit other than to satisfy people who say you should totally use it because Microsoft and Apple are evil. There's no killer app on it for me, and as much as I like the concept of open source I don't see it as vital and have a lot of frustrations with it (mostly that it's usually zero cost, which means developers can't be held accountable for fixing bugs or feature advancement). It's nice doing update reboots when I choose to and not being dictated to with the whole "would you like to reboot now, let us reboot for you later (hope you had nothing important open!), or force us to break your kneecaps?" routine that Windows does, but that's not enough for me.
