I did learn years ago with mint 17.x, after that i returned to windows 10 because of the games i played.
Since i used mint i was always like...someday linux will be my os to run. Because it can be heavy customized and respects the privacy of its users.
I tried elemantory os in 2016, didnt like it.
A month ago i saw good reviews about zorin os 16, decided to give it a chance and pfffff i felt in love with it. In the days i tested linux mint 17 i tried zorin as well, but i had alot issues with it 8 years ago. Now its super stable and i didnt encouter the freezing issues i had back then with mint 17.x and zorin.
