I'll third this. I'm a retired vacuum tube engineer. Tried SuSE, Puppy, Manjaro, Mint, Ubuntu Unity, ... few others I forgot ... Ubuntu MATE is a different animal. Highly adaptable to the noob.

Years ago I put Zorin on my dad's PC; he's 95. Other free-support clients get Kubuntu if their machines support it, Lubuntu (32 bit, maybe) for their antiques. You just have to restore the icon clutter, the wallpaper, and the solitaire game and they're happy as clams and don't bother you.
