Originally I wanted to install Linux on my laptop, which I use only for the sake of having a computer I would be able to use outside not worried about the possibility of being robbed as this computer is too crappy for these times to worry about it (If someone gave me 100$ I would give it without any second thought). I bought an used 32 GB SSD disc in order to have a decent speed and just enough memory to work. When I booted it, I saw that there was win 10 already installed on the disk. I did't see that in the offer, but it would be convenient for me to use win 10 instead of linux, although I don't know if I should and so I immediately came up with idea to ask this question, as nobody ever asked it before me (as far as I'm concerned). Can I proceed with win 10, or should I install Ubuntu or bother with buying licence ect? As I don't want to have an illegal windows on computer.

P.S. I am not going to use the system until I get a response.
