How well did Windows 10 protect Colonial Pipeline against a ransomware attack?

You really need to stop trotting this out as though it means anything.  Ransomware attacks can (and do) occur on virtually any un-hardened networked system.  And all it takes is a single node to unleash it on.

Hacks happen.  They're a fact of cyber life.  There are OSes, proper, that are more resistant than others, and even in the more resistant ones, all it takes is a wee bit of carelessness, somewhere on a single computer/node in a network, for ransomware to enter.

Also, unless you have information that's not been made public, there is no definitive analysis regarding exactly what did occur in the case of Colonial.  Lot's of speculation but nothing "official" and even what's put out officially will likely be incomplete.
