So I’m a long time Windows user, as probably most that are new to Linux. I have a reasonable technical knowledge.
So. Install was fine. simple enough.
Desktop. 1st thing I like to do is change my desktop background, make it personal. right click desktop, nothing happens. Go to load an internet page to look up some help, nope…no internet. instinctively I go to bottom right corner, look for a WIFI button, nope… not there. Open settings, go to network… nope not there. has its own “wifi” section hidden within the settings. 1st impressions we not great.
so get internet connected, try to find a fix for my right click, yay finally I can my desktop background… 2 hours later. got instructed to open up a terminal, install gnome tweaks. As a new user, this is already starting to overwhelm me.
now I need to chillax a bit, go to watch a YouTube vid, to realize my resolution is stuck at 720p. Tried searching updates, zorin was all up to date. searched for drivers in start menu, they said all up to date. I have to admit, at this stage I had enough, I moved on and installed a different linux OS. I’m not going to say what, but the experience has been a lot better. it is a shame because Zoran to me, looked beautiful, even at 720p LOL
Keep working on it guys, need to appeal to new users a little better.
