Hello! I installed Zorin Os Core a week ago, and as my first linux experience after so many years using Windows, I may say it has been a good one! I chose Zorin after taking a test to see which distro would better suit my needs, and I was really impressed how fast and gorgeous it is.
I really liked Zorin Connect, since I use my notebook for streaming on my old dumb TV. I had some issues setting it up, but I found out it was something on my router that didn't let my notebook and phone to find each other. A reset later, and all worked just fine.
I used a VPN on windows , and I was surprised it supported linux. I was aprehensive at first, because I had to use it through Terminal, but I proudly learned the commands and got it working.
Gaming is something I wish to test in the next few days. I was able to install steam and it seems all my games are compatible, but I didnt have the time to see one by one.
