Hi, I'm looking at Zorin Core or lite for my next OS on my Lenovo ThinkPad X300.
Right now I'm running Peach OSI TW 16.04 LTS ESM based on Xubuntu.
The author died last september, so no new versions will be made.
I read an article about Zorin 16, where it was said that in this version a new Upgrade tool is introduced which should make so its no longer needed to make clean install.
I'm extremely tired of having to wipe my SSD and start over with a new version, so I will like to get something clarified:
If I go with Zorin Core 16 XFCE, will I be able to Upgrade that to a newer version when such is released and will all my customizations and settings be kept intact?
I use a special program for control of my fan speed, TPfanco. Would I able to use this in Zorin, as I can in Xubuntu?
Are there any issues with:
Intel GMA X3100 graphic card?
I like dark theme, and have configured my own setup, would that also be possible in Zorin or do I need to stick to the standard themes available for Core or Lite?
I use a lot of programs in Xubuntu, some GTK+ like avidemux, Thunderbird, Firefox, Audacity, and so on. Will I still be able use Ubuntu programs?
How about Windows programs, is Zorin fully capable of running those or are there still glitches? I have some Phone tools I need sometimes, that will not run in linux or can't see. the usb port, like uberizer and phone flash software. Will I be able to use those in Zorin?
Thank you in advance
