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.

    I started out with zorin, i love it. I gamed on it a fair bit, it does help you run wine things by installing wine if you try to run anything windows so it might be good if you just switched. But I was looking for something minimal so I’m on KDE Neon now. I use bottles to run games and works amazing too.

      Am I dullard for just using Lutris? Like literally any time I want to install a program or game I will use Lutris’ GUI to select the installer, select a prefix directory, and so on. Once it’s done installing, then I switch the target EXE to the actual program I want. It isn’t exactly convenient but it has been reliable. So I haven’t tried any other approach.

        As long as it works. I still go back to “play on Linux” once in a while to look back on the not so minimal GUI, has a certain charm to it.
