I am along-retired software (middleware) developer with just a little long ago use of UNIX as a teminal interface to GE Timesharing system. I installed ZORIN 16 recently and like it, but observed pretty quickly that a Windows or Apple user would encounter serious roadblocks to using LINUX, even with the very nice ZORIN 16 interface. I would like to let the ZORIN 16 developers know of my experiences so I searched this forum to find out how to do so, without success.
The first problem I encountered was in installing ZORIN 16. My desktop has an SSD drive and a hard drive. I moved Windows 10 off the SSD, and wanted to install ZORIN 16 on the SSD. 'Live' ZORIN 16 allowed me to see the disks and partitions, and a nicer interface would have allowed bring that interface up and click on the partition I wanted to use for the install.
Next problem I encountered was a need to mount a Windows partition. Again a nice, simple GUI 'mount' interface would been easy, whereas the 'command' mount would have been beyond many W/A users' comprehension.
These problems are certainly no show stoppers for me, and I will wean myself from W10 Pro. I personally doubt it is possible to wean oneself from LINUX, there is just too much good stuff inherent in the overall design of the OPSYS!
