With one exception, on each of several machines I have installed cinnamon on, the performance has been superior to Linux Mint, hands down. It is equal to performance of XFCE.
The exception is the Old 32 bit Tablet PC Sony Toughbook - and cinnamon does finally bog that one down a bit, so I stick with XFCE on that. And it only bogs down on Zorin 15 on that Toughbook. On Zorin 12, it runs well.
It is a different desktop environment, so it’s any differences between Mate and XFCE. I use the Stark Menu on one Monitor and the larger Cinnamenu on the other monitor.
Zorin Menu does not work on Cinnamon desktop, as it is an Arc Menu Gnome extension. Interestingly, the Arc Menu and the Whiskermenu had the same original Author, Graeme Gott.
Lasted a few days. I had actually forgotten all about it. When you said this, I was like, “wha…?”
What I had done was smashed my foot and turned it all rainbows of one purple color.
By the second day, I was hopping on one foot around the shop. By the third day, I kept forgetting that I was supposed to be hopping instead of putting weight on it. By the forth day, I let it complain, I was tired of listening to it.
A few weeks back, Vivaldi murdered one of our computers and I had to do a wipe and reload. It was easier… to tap into a copy of Zorin Ultimate than it was to download and create a copy of Zorin Lite. Then, I had butchered my own build beyond all repair and did it again on my computer… I did not feel too right about Using Zorin Ultimate while neglecting the forum… Since Azorin had gifted me that copy as a “Thank You” for helping out on the forum for the last year and a half or whatever. So, I have been posting all over the place trying to earn my keep.
