I think switching to Linux is a fair suggestion. I switched from Windows a few months ago and have zero switching costs. My essential needs are browsing (firefox / chrome), music (banshee) , movies (vlc) and rudimentary docs / spreadsheet work (libreoffice) and all of these are handled well. Use a Live USB or DVD, try it out on your hardware for a while before installation. Linux Mint is a friendly OS and both MATE (older hardware) and Cinnamon flavors are good choices. Please note I am NOT a developer, just an average desktop user and have got accustomed to Linux desktop in few weeks. Have Windows installed in same machine as dual-boot for any contingency purposes.

Critics say upgrade to other Windows OS will mean fresh installation costs and downtime

My LinuxMint Cinnamon Desktop - Just a simple one with one of the default wallpapers bundled with Mint and few desk-lets > Quote of the Day, Stick Notes, Weather and Driver Manager.

Perhaps a dumb question - If Sailfish OS uses Qt, does it mean KDE applications can run well / ported easily into it?

Well, usability is a secondary issue as long as they run.

My machine is fully supported by Mint (15),even so old soundcard like Audigy2. I never have any problems with it. Works better like onboard soundcard on my Asus Z87A :)

Glad to know Mint Box 2 is going places. (literally as well!) I take every opportunity to share that am a very happy Mint Box 2 user (my review below) and it is currently my primary desktop running Cinnamon Petra. I absolutely have no hassles with it and it sits compact on my bedroom desk. 
I have a 24 inch LED Monitor, Logitech wireless KB + Mouse with JBL bluetooth speaker as accessories. Perfect for my media and browsing needs.

The second generation of the MintBox device was first unveiled in the summer of 2013.
