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 have a… philosophical issue with Zorin. It is based on Ubuntu, which is fine, but then they charge for “Zorin Pro” which gives you access to different preconfigured desktop layouts that are provided using FOSS software. They’re doing nothing wrong from a licensing perspective or anything, but it still rubs me the wrong way.

    I would say Linux Mint or even just Ubuntu are better recommendations for a solid beginner distro.
