I feel that I'm the only one that use zorin lite, for zorin lite users: where r you? what is your opinion in zorin lite ?
I used Zorin OS Core and installed Zorin Lite Desktop on it so it was basically Zorin Core + Lite but merged together in one OS...But I don't think I can raise my hand because I switched Pop! OS a few days ago and I don't think I am going to move from here either.
I don't like gnome , so i'll never switch to pop os , what's your reason for switching?
No specific reason...I did what everyone did- "Distro Hopping" but I think the cosmic desktop, pop shell and the kernel version attracted me the most. I like GNOME, at least I find it stable and easy to use but I also use cinnamon at times. The Pop! Shop is definitely a good thing about Pop! OS.
I haven't tried Pop os before, but I think Zorin os has a very important advantage make him better than Pop os , that advantage is zorin lite, no Pop lite in Pop os
I use Zorin Lite on my ThinkPad
happy to hear that, I like zorin lite everything is good in it.stability , performance and flexibility
Zorin Lite also using gnome package. Trying uninstall gnome from Lite example dissapear store. xD I was using Zorin Lite a couple weeks, for simple using is ok. It depends what is your preferences.
you r right , but I think zorin lite has everything like zorin core, just zorin lite uses xfce desktop environment and zorin core uses gnome environment, the name of lite is just for xfce(lite)
Xfce this is diffrent scheme with diffrent DE.
Yes i tried xfce,core and pro. Now @Elegant_Emperor gived me some hungry pop os but before i tested pop was diffrent and now is diffrent. With Zorin i am from many years Zorin 7 version. I was example checked file package on Zorin have over 2200 lines. ZorinGroup working hard and they only 2 people.
may be Pop os is better than zorin core in some advantages, but it's not better than zorin lite, because it doesn't have Pop lite version, I found everything i need in zorinlite and working very very good for weak pc
You mean pc like example Asus s500sa?
no,i mean system requirements: Designed for old and low-spec computers.
- CPU: 1 GHz Single Core – Intel/AMD 64-bit processor
- RAM: 1 GB
- Storage: 10 GB (Lite), 22 GB (Education Lite), or 40 GB (Pro Lite)
- Display: 800 × 600 resolution
I also use Zorin lite because i don't need any bulky desktop environment (gnome)
Gnome Developers have done an incredible job of making the heavy Gnome desktop very light on its toes. Given its bulk, it should be sluggish on many older machines and mid-range on newer. Yet, it delicately balances its processes and moves nimbly, in spite of its mass. Credit where credit is due.
Zorin OS Core works very well even on older machines or lower cpu clockspeeds.
I use Zorin OS Lite because it is swifter, true - but mostly because it gives greater consistency. It is a fuller desktop with built in features that I do not need to chase down and add on as extensions.
It is conducive to workflow... Examples:
On Gnome, when I open a new window, it opens as minimized to the panel by default. On XFCE, opening a window actually opens it in front of me, which is all wanted in the first place - by default. IF in the rare moment, I did not need it opened when I opened it, I just minimize it by my own choice.
Menus are easy to find and navigate, laid out in grid like fashion that allows fast understanding at a glance. I do not struggle to find options, preferences and settings like I do on Gnome.
Zorin OS Lite is very configurable and I enjoy setting it up exactly as I want and being able to easily change that if I need or want.
As a workbench, I find Gnome to be much harder to work within. As a desktop browser for more casual use, it probably would be fine. But when I am working fast, under pressure... I need a workbench that assists the workflow instead of hindering it.
This is not the case always..
I too found this annoying. Turns out the reason that GNOME gave for this unwanted feature was to avoid the opening of windows over something that you are already working on. If you don't change focus i.e click or scroll somewhere else, this wouldn't happen.
Good to know. Any tip helps.
I reading LFS information.
As for glibc, compared to LFS 11, the requirements for the minimum versions of other host utilities in general have been greatly reduced. For example, the previous release required GCC at least 6.2, while the 11.1 release requires at least 4.8. The latest release has probably been tested on a wider range of versions. And because GCC and other utilities have their own minimum glibc version requirements, they probably decided not to specify it because in the host system (unless this host system was built with a very atypical configuration), the desired minimum glibc version is present by default. It is also possible that closer testing showed that the new pseudo-cross-platform build technology does not depend on glibc (does not use glibc files installed in the host system in any way). In fact, by the end of chapter 6 we already have a set of tools that only need the kernel to work from the host system.
That means linux going to better way.
