smps upto 220v at 5 amps(i guess)
well i found something usually zorin lacks, crashes, something goes wrong with it; in short we all know linux is not that stable but still being free it is much more stable than windows for both new and older hardware. i didn't face any lag while using zorin, but yes faced problems while using zorin or any other ubuntu system.
according to my findings on my pc zorin or ubuntu usually stays stable without any problems for maximum 10 days, but that's not an issue because these things can easily be fixed by a simple restart. but the main problem comes every month when the system usually crashes or is not able to find some system files that it doesn't know where the heck it saved it .
there comes the problem the real user needs performance which linux has and i am happy to report that i started a thread on that. linux or specially zorin is packed with performance , no doubt it is much better than windows in performance and ofcourse better in stability for old hardware. but, it isn't that good !! if something is made for old hardware it should make the best out of it and atleast provide stability as much as windows( especially made for new hardware) on new hardware.
WHO WANTS TO COMPARE LINUX TO WINDOWS?
everyone knows windows is trash, right?
now, lets see LINUX Vs MAC, for sure keeping in mind that linux is free ( but zorin po isn't)
MAC has everything it is stable,it runs softwares like fluid, most powerful processors, great for developers and oh my THE BATTERY LIFE !!
LINUX has stability( some extend), old hardware support,better than mac for developers and FREE!!!
leave the performance side linux has that on it's side but what it doesn't have is stability. now i can ignore stability on distros like ubuntu,pop!_os,solus,etc since they are FREE but with zorin pro they charge $39+ and they still cant deliver basic features and STABILITY ? why? are we overpaying linux? well,i guess that's a no; but yes we are ( don't know about you but i guess atleast i am) paying zorin too much.
just giving ubuntu with a bunch of wallpapers,animations and designs doesn't mean they can charge a $40. A consumer doesn't need performance specially with old hardware since he/she just needs stability foremost as THAT'S THE BASIC REASON HE/SHE SWITCHED FROM WINDOWS,RIGHT? then, why can't zorin just see their users concern and implement it that way?
just because it is a small business doesn't mean that people will keep buying their products for cheap and still get the same issues they used to get on a windows machine.
the zorin basically just added a little c++ to ubuntu and called it a new os, they even copied kde connect fully and called it zorin connect and they charge us for that?
its like getting charged for using an hackintosh(with many hardware limits) when i can get macos fo free?
ZORIN IS DOING DIRTY BUSINESS AND I AM NOT HAPPY WITH ITS STABILITY !!!
