Suggestions For ZorinOS (Default Install Options)

I'm somewhat of a new user to ZorinOS, and I just thought I would pass along a few basic suggestions for the Zorin team to consider implementing in the future. I came up with a very simple list of suggestions to help improve the user experience when Zorin is first installed. I'm not trying to suggest anything big here, just a few minor things that Zorin should REALLY consider including in the core installation.

#1. Add a feature to centre all new windows.

I know it doesn't take much to download the tweaks program and turn this on, but I don't see why this feature shouldn't come straight out of the box.

#2. More folder colour options (including black).

I'm not sure why Zorin doesn't have more options when it comes to folder colour choices. I really don't like any of the choices that come standard with the system, and I don't see why I have to install a separate extension just to get black folders on my desktop. It seems very counter-intuitive to me.

#3. Add a "Show Desktop" button on the right side of the taskbar.

Once again I realise that you can install an extension to add this feature to Zorin, but I really don't see why this feature isn't included with the initial install.

#4. Add more desktop icon size options.

I have been trying to get my icon sizes right for a few days now, and I just can't seem to figure it out. Zorin only gives you 4 options for folder sizes, and I find that the standard option is too small (on a 1440p display) and the large option is too big. I would have thought that the custom scaling option would help, but it doesn't. It should be like Windows. Left control + mouse scroll wheel.

Other than that I don't have much else to complain about. I find ZorinOS to be a really great distro for new users coming from Windows, but I just hope we'll see more positive changes coming in the future.
