I installed Zorin 15 OS Core to try as a replacement for Windows 10. It ran like cr@p on my PC. I had very low frame rates, constant lag and issues with programs not starting when you click on them with Zorin. The OS was unusable for the average Windows user.
My Dell XPS 8700
Processor - Intel Core i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz, 3601 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 24.0 GB
Video card - GTX720 graphics card 2GB RAM
This computer isn’t a power house but ran excellent on Windows 10.
I used a uninstaller and now I can only boot to Windows if I tap the F12 key while booting. Then I’m given the option to boot to Zorin or Windows. Zorin has added a Supervisor password to my Bios which I’m unable to remove. Needless to say I cant change the boot order. I’ve tried many “so-called” work-a-arounds for this problem, but none have worked. My next option is to spend $100 with Dell Tech support. A PC that won’t boot/reboot on it’s own is useless.
I’m in my 60’s now and have been playing with computer since the 80’s. I do most all of the tech work for friends and relatives my age or older. I am comfortable around computers.
For a program called “Windows alternative” and good for older people Zorin is not! You should stop touting this as an replacement for Window!
