Recently I am considering more and more moving my primary pc to a Linux distro. Somewhat for privacy issues but also to have more control over my system and to reduce the amound of advertising that windows keeps cramming in my face. Specifically I’m looking at Zorin. I was wondering what thoughs people here had on it.

I predominantly use my pc for gaming with friends. Almost entirely through Steam and we use discord to communicate. I’m mostly just curious if anyone here has had much experience with Zorin and whay they thought of it as a daily driver for gaming.

    Id recommend Mint or POP OS, they are better optimized for Gaming and still super beginner friendly. Steam games should work but you can check it out on SteamDB.

    What you should know is that you can dual boot until you got stuff running like you want it.

    Also the fact that MS office is one of the only things you can’t get running on Linux because Microsoft is a bitch.

      Actually thats the plan is to dual boot to make sure everything runs decently and then switch over.

      And eh I’ve recently switched to libreoffice, and with a few exceptions it does what I need (rip xlookup).

          Same actually. But work supplies their own pc and I try desperately to keep work stuff off my home stuff. So generally not an issue. I appreciate the heads up though!
