Answer is depends on what you mean by "the masses"
Answer is, its better than an exploited xp/win7 alternative.
I've decided to redo my PC, seen Zorin (early ver.) suspected to have caused a major problem twice now so not risking it further, but still think Ubuntu is stable enough for almost anyone.

Is it hard to run very old hardware on the internet. Yes... updates are a fact of life if you're letting your computer see the world. Suck it up or buy new hardware.
Best chance for old hardware too. But do agree, if you ignore how many can't afford an upgrade these days.

Mint OS probably, since it feels like windows.

The issue I find on Linux for windows users is file storage and navigation.

A desktop isn't the same as in windows knowing how the average user works when it comes to file storage and navigation.

Like I said earlier, I've run Ubuntu 20.10 on ARM64 for 3 weeks. It does it's job 98% of the time. The 2% is a combination of Solarwinds/NCentral/RDP and Port Forwarding.
