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.

    You might want to know about discord updates, if the maintainers of the distribution don’t update discord as fast as the discord developper, it will fail to launch when major update happen since those don’t go through the internal updater of the client, and discord only provide a .deb package, which you can install with a simple double click on debian based distribution (ubuntu, mint, mx, zorin etc), and a generic linux exectuable, which can be launched in any distributions but won’t be automatically integrated in your application menus

      Try tweaking this, courtesy of the slackbuild page for discord:

      If you’d like Discord to continue working after an upstream update is released, but is not yet available on SBo, add the following to your user’s ~/.config/discord/settings.json file:

      “SKIP_HOST_UPDATE”: true
