I work at home, where I have a 15-year old Mac G4 running OS 10.4, and a new System76 Gazelle Pro running Ubuntu 15.04. I love the Mac and it continues to work just fine (knock on wood), but it became increasingly frustrating or impossible to access the Web 2.0-style mobile-targeted websites with OS 10.4 browsers. I bought the System76 experimentally to see if it was possible to get away from the proprietary-systems racket. I am not yet sure what the answer is. I am a (Unix) software developer by profession, but I don't really want to have to learn how to "develop" my own laptop environment; I want it to already provide me with the tools I need to do other work. My Mac definitely does that; I am not (yet?) convinced that Ubuntu can.
