    What Internet Browser(s) are you using

    Firefox on Ubuntu and Firefox Lite in Android Go. The tracking protection sometimes cause trouble in some websites and then I have to use Chrome.

    Android versions

    You are right Poorguy. I just noticed a special on a Nokia 2.2 at a local store. Stays up to date and the screen is not too small. Just right.

    Android versions

    Okay, I know Android is not strictly Linux and so on, but I have the following problem. I want to buy a smartphone or tablet and noticed the budget ones have either Android Oreo or Android 9 that will probably update to Android 10 on Nokia and Samsung devices. If I choose say, a Alcatel...

    Install VLC Media Player on Ubuntu 20.04

    Yes, I also prefer sudo apt install. The snaps use more data and sometimes are less stable. That was my experience with Firefox.

    Compromised would be appreciated.

    That's the strangest thing! When I messed about with Fedora, removing programs I didn't need, things got unstable, not so with Zorin OS. Don't know why. Anyway, my Zorin installation is doing fine. In my country they banned cigarettes and beer! Terrible! At least I still have Linux!

    Hello everybody

    Uw Engels is heel goed en Zorin is mijn gunsteling Linux versie. Pardon mijn Nedrlands is niet zo goed, gewoond aan Afrikaans. I started with Zorin years ago and used many distros after that but keep returning to Zorin because it a whole lot less trouble. Blijven veilig en was uw handen heel...

    Relax, and take your time.

    Maybe he wanted everyone else to have a base to built on, including many people creating open-source software or his a Russian spy surveilling everyone using Linux servers? Seriously, I must just mention Mark Shuttleworth, who threw open Linux to the common people.

    Relax, and take your time.

    Linus Torvalds reach enlightenment and then he got into a trance and forgot to make a complete OS on top of his kernel. That's really mysterious!

    Need some advice on what Linux Distro to choose

    I hope it works for you. Zorin keeps a good consistently reliable distro, some others get worse after major changes to new releases.

    Relax, and take your time.

    You use Zorin if you have no patience, Fedora if you have some patience and Manjaro if you have lots of patience.

    Zorin on Wayland

    You are absolutely right and I am not very technically knowledgeable to know if a problem is because of Wayland or Gnome or how they work together. I did not get the split screen while using Fedora with Gnome and Wayland. Different Linux distros also use various Gnome versions.

    Zorin on Wayland

    Not as far as I know. Fedora is different to other Linux distros, because it gives you the choice to restart and install after it downloaded the updates. So no auto restart, I have to click the option to restart and install. Zorin downloads updates and then installs and sometimes require a...

    Zorin on Wayland

    Yes, Fedora always installs and restarts again after an update. I tried using it after that and the program icons didn't open the programs like they should. I then restarted again and it got stuck for 10 minutes on some processes and I get impatient and force restarted it again. I have a AMD...

    Zorin on Wayland

    I have noticed less screen tearing with Wayland, but when the screen goes blank as I have chosen it to do, and I move the mouse and click escape the desktop is split in two with I vertical line down the middle. At least I can still click on the menu. This was in Zorin 15.2. While using Fedora...

    Zorin on Wayland

    I am running Zorin on Wayland and thus far it seems more responsive than before. I know it's almost just Fedora that run Wayland by default on Fedora Workstation. Anyone with experience using Wayland? The good and the bad?
