*I needed to be able remap my mouse buttons so the side buttons do volume up/down. Input Remapper does this perfectly.
*I needed to use Chrome but scrolling is painfully slow on Linux. The Linux Scroll Speed Fix extension cured this.
*I needed to make shortcut icons to websites on the desktop and taskbar. Chrome does this (they show up in Start/Chrome apps).
*I needed a simple photo editor like Paint.NET. Pinta works.
*It needed it to work with my Brother AIO printer. Check.
*A plug and play wifi dongle that would do 50mbps at distance. Found one on Amazon for $7.
*I needed the SweetHome 3D design app (the only one I ever mastered, sorta). Linux has it.
*I didn't want to have to become a command line commando (sudo -i nautilus to the rescue).
*I needed to be able to control a PC with my phone. Zorin Connect does it.
*I needed a slick and modern looking UI (sorry, Mint).
*I needed an OS that wouldn't reject my hardware and refuse to install on it.
*It would be nice if it didn't constantly nag me like Windows. Zorin doesn't.
I've installed Zorin on 3 PCs with 2 to go. Goodbye Windows, after 30 yrs.
