My husband was getting upset with how Windows (10) was (mis) managing video streaming. It seemed that every time he wanted to watch something Windows was running something in the background which chopped up the streaming. I had him watch something on my Zorin laptop which had him ready to switch. I set up my previous laptop with Zorin and as I was sure he would like with additional software. It was instant appreciation and NO streaming issues since.
Congrats on making a successful transition! Make sure to point out there is always some learning curve when using something new, as most frustration comes from the little things that "just worked on Windows". But I'm sure you already have this covered.
Windows is always running something in the background
For sure a learning curve must be taken into account! I remember how frustrating it was to even learn (years back) Windows after working with Edlin (DOS) when I first worked on computers. The difficult thing is that we have gotten sooooo 'spoiled' with no-thought operating systems .
I just put Zorin on a 2011 era laptop which I originally put Linux Mint . It was always sluggish on Mint . Did some searching and came up with Zorin and I installed it instead of mint and what a difference . This 12 year old laptop runs like new and even the 12 year old wireless adapter is fast . Zorin is a lot better than Mint and seems easier to use also even though they are both supposed to be based on Ubuntu . Glad I found Zorin .
Hubby learned years back that the handle on the vacuum is unisex! LOL!! We are a DIY household - have build a house together, fenced 40 acres and I split firewood right along side him. The 'no joke' remark we settled on many years ago was that he cleans the toilets because he views the inside of the bowl while I never see it . . .
