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.

    While both Mint and Zorin are good “beginner” distros, they might not be the best choice for gaming. Since your primary use seems to be gaming and you’re on an nvidia GPU, you may also want to have a look at distros, that make it easier to set them up for that. So apart from Pop_OS you could also look at Nobara Linux or Bazzite. Not to confuse you with even more options, but it’s good to know what’s out there and try some stuff out to see what works.

      There are definitely a of of options, but I think thats a good thing in this case. I’ve seen quite a few people mention Pop_OS. I’m leaning towards giving that a shot and seeing how I like it. Thank you for the input :).

        I’m really excited about where Pop! is going, and I plan to make it my next os. I’ve been using Ubuntu for a while now.

          Well it’s the one I’m testing. Spun up a vm just to take a look. Still trying to wrap my head around some stuff but overall I like it. It seems mostly intuitive and the ui is easy on the eyes.
