I’m a potential future user of Zorin who would not only use it for personal use, but also switch over some of our business machines.
With that being said, privacy is always first and foremost a concern when it comes to switching to a new operating system.
There is no sandboxing of apps, permissions control, or any hardening that has been mentioned.
After installing the latest free build, I also noticed there is NO PRIVACY OPTIONS AT ALL. Seriously?! Even the most basic and barebones Linux distributions I have privacy settings where you can enable/disable thinks like location services, file/usage history, and other important privacy features which are pivotal to basic privacy/security.
I’m shocked, and kind of appalled, that Zorin has been around this long (and even offers a paid version) and doesn’t seem to care about user’s privacy at all and even goes as far as removing features that would enhance user’s privacy.
I love the look and feel of Zorin but all of the issues above are so big that no matter how much I like the look and feel, I can’t switch or recommend my businesses switching due to these serious issues.
