It's a pity that usually majority of the softwares (at least for the ones I'm using) does not supports linux based os. It's usually either mac os or windows. If not I am quite eager to give linux a try.

linux is never for windows users who not know linux.linux start from console.gui is just extra.same thing we can say zorin user can go back windows?. when linux break there no fix for it.99% windows can be fixed. and 99% time linux break on update.texeditor change hard worked GPU drivers to default. GPU manu facturers not make new driver ever 0.0.01 change. why linux change so much GPU drivers not work. they should work literaly forever. WITHOUT new things,but in linux world it not work if it not work

I'm definitely a bigger fan of Zorin 15 Lite as opposed to the core/ultimate version. To be honest, I'm just not a big fan of Gnome in its current state. Zorin does do one thing well, and that's attention to detail. Usually, I stick to Linux Mint, but for light installs I think I'm going to switch over from Linux Mint XFCE to Zorin Lite. For me, I could use either one just the same, since they are both based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, but its just the little things I think Zorin Lite does better. I'll still use LM Cinnamon over Zorin Core though, never liked the android style launcher quite so much nor the vertical panels.

Setting up a dual boot should work OK. But dual boot configs on a single drive can create problems for both OS. So proceed with caution. I say more about this in my Ryzen Build video #4 on Linux Mint dual boot (same principle).

I just installed solace last night on a laptop I have that I really been trying to get prime OS to run on but it I think it won't run because it doesn't have the SCE 4.1 instructions it's like SD 4.83 or something and it just won't run the the 64-bit versions of most of this stuff.I've mostly resigned myself to running the 32-bit version of everything although I usually check the 64-bit versions first. One thing I noticed was soulless that made me really like it from a technical standpoint was that it seemed to reboot itself several times and try different kernel still have found the colonel that would run with my operating system instead of making me choose and I thought that was cook

Would you recommend this over Linux Mint? They both look the same, but I kind of like the set up of the menu bar better over here. I'm new to Linux and coming over from Windows. I refuse to upgrade to Windows 10, as it seems to be very invasive. Not to mention I do not like the new start menu of Windows 10. I was also wondering if this is a long-term support edition, since it was not mentioned in the video. Any comments or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

@Steve Pratt It really comes down to a personal choice on the look and feel -- write a bootable USB of each, and play with them for an hour. You will easily choose which one to click "install" in. :)

I watched your videos about both of them and couldn't make a decision. I ended up downloading them both, and I'm going to try them individually. I am sure each one has their pros and cons. Thanks for the reply. And I I just wanted to say that I love your channel. All the videos I've watched have been very informative and non biased. It truly makes watching them enjoyable.

Both Zorin OS 15 and Linux Mint 19.x are based on Ubuntu 18.04, which is long term support. So which you choose is personally preference. Zorin is a nice transition from WIndows.

Linux looks beautiful, but man does it suck to use! If you want privacy and a ton of headaches get linux! If your just checking emails and web surfing won't be a problem if your wifi adapter supports linux (mine doesn't). But if you want to run windows software or play modern games, you will have headaches!

No, but you can use Wine to provide an emulation interface to some windows software. You can use VirtualBox to provide a virtual environment that allows you to install Windows and then install Windows software in the virtual Windows environment. Search for VirtualBox and Linux Wine for more information.

I do not like Zorin. I used it years ago, but it got worse and is no more in use. And, above all, it seems to be taken for business and thus turns more and more into a paid OS. I prefer Mint alongside Windows 10. Mint runs on all my machines perfectly without murmur.

played with it for couple moments. yeah... it's cool and everything, but i still couldn't find a a single reasons to drop Windows that works fine and can do literally everything i've ever needed it to do. switching would be a huge waste of time and effort and a pain in the ass. and why? just so i could be using some other knockoff OS that's almost kinda barely as good and useful (its really not) as OS i've been using fine my whole life. i've been trying to get into linux couple times in my life and every time this was my clear conclusion.

In Zorin OS, you also have (or you can install) Wine. Thus it is possible to run Windows software. Current version is I think 4.03.Just open the terminal (xtrl-alt-t) and write "sudo apt-get install wine-stable". E.g I like the 3d Skat demo 1.0 from bufopro.de.

@Uwe B No it's there in Core as well, just install "Windows App Support" from the OS software center. I'm also no fan of Wine, prefer to drink it myself!

@Art McTeagle Yes. But as far as I know (may be wrong) wine is only in the ultimate package, not in core. In core, just open terminal and write "sudo apt-get install wine-stable". This gives you wine 4.03 (I did that a few days ago). But, if you have already wine. I tried everything i knew, includig the article in ubuntuusers, but did not manage to update wine 3.0 to 4.03. I tried uninstall and then install. Lately, I downgraded undeliberately from 3.0 to 1.6... But this is not a matter of zorin os, but of ubuntu in general I think. Or of wine in general. I prefer to drink wine rather than trying to update...

05:32. Hi. I am using Zorin Os for about 2 years now. I you choose "something else" at the installation type, there is partition manager, you have the option to create or delete existing partition, or reformat the partition where you might have already installed an old system, and reinstalling Zorin OS 15. You need this option to upgrade from 12 zu 15 for example.

Of course, I am going to install the Core one on my 2007 IBM Thinkpad R61. If that is too heavy then I will go to the Lite version. Keep up the great work! : = )
