I will be blunt and politically incorrect.
As a lot of people migrated to Linux from Windows due to them being unhappy with Windows Costs, they brought along with them the way Windows had Trained them to view home computing.
In other words: Laziness.
These newcomer users came in large enough numbers, complaining about how in Windows, installations were easy. They wanted the same in Linux.
Sadly, perceptions matter.
In Windows, installations are easy only when they work. When they do not, you are at such a loss of control, it is exceptionally hard to fix or diagnose.
Windows installations include all dependencies and extras that the installation MAY need, regardless of whether or not the computer already has such installed.
With Linux installs, the user had full control. If an installation fails, the terminal tells you why and how to fix it. And you install only what you need.
Canonicals answer to this cryout for Windows Style Installations was the Snap Package system. Snap is self contained, including all dependencies, in one installer. It brings Bloat to your computer and it removes much of the control. Snap packages do not play well with system themes or icons. And if a Snap package goes awry, there is little you can do.
Flatpack and Snap do go wrong sometimes. They require more maintenance. So, as Ubuntu will push their Snap packages, going so far as to include them in the Software Store… without really giving much warning that that is what it is… they are worth avoiding.
It is not my desire to be rude. Sometimes, ya just gotta tell it like it is.
In the meantime, linux users are now complaining about running out of room in their Root folder or home partition so easily now…
Zorin is the same for both.
If you would like some of the apps on Zorin Education that you see listed in the preview of Zorin Education’s download page, you can install any of those apps from your terminal or preferred package manager like Synaptic.
