Yesterday I installed Zorin OS 16 and I am speaking for many in society that try to change their operating system from Microsoft or Apple to a Linux distro such as Ubuntu or now Zorin OS 16.
Unfortunately, if you work from home or are a gamer, many software and hardware peripherals do not work with Linux.
- Opera GX simply doesn't work with Linux inl Ubuntu or Zorin
- Dual monitor displays are nowhere as easy to set up as Microsoft and I have had problems from the start with my external 4k Asus 31" monitor not displaying the screen from my Razer Blade 15" advanced.
- Razer synapse doesn't work on Linux
Now for me, this is a major issue because Linux is NOT new, it has been around for decades and in fact, Microsoft and Apple run from a Linux Kernal and on the same Unix system as Linux. The community is poor also because there are far too many people who have no idea what they are talking about by simply searching (I use the term search as I no longer use Google, I now use Yandex) for answers to help people on forums. Please don't, some of you actually make things harder.
In my humble opinion having now been forced to revert back to Microsoft as so many do, I would suggest that Zorin becomes a closed-source operating system with a FREE core offering for the Linux enthusiast, because this OS has massive potential but until this OS becomes serious and compatible as now even Google OS has become, then people are FORCED to stay with American big tech.
I work with Proton AG and Yandex NV and I would be very interested in purchasing shares or even buying this OS to make a European version of Microsoft born and bred in Europe.
