Is the Linux Mint Gnome Edition losing favouritism from users of the new Zorin Core 4 ?
This Review is for Comparison Only & is only a View of the ever changing Linux Distros Available. It is in no way intended to be derogatory towards Linux Mint,
But hopefully a view of what may be to come from the wonderful world of Linux & what may be in store for the future for Mint Users & Linux Users.
A flame war Here will result in the thread being Locked.Please Do Not Flame.
A lot of the reviews on Youtube & around the Web, point to the New Ubuntu based Zorin Core 4 ( the latest Gnome Release from Zorin OS ) as quote -" Even better than Linux Mint Gnome ".
I checked this out, & even downloaded & ran the new distro from a USB thumbdrive, just for my own curiosity.
Aside from the distro being Ubuntu Based & with GNOME desktop, I do not consider the pre-installed Apps to be of utmost importance ( because any user Can install whichever Apps & or Customise their desktop to their needs & liking ).
However, I do believe that any Distro should include a usable selection of Apps , Preferably highly Rated Apps .( Ex = Web Browser, Picture Program,Office, Ect. )
I think Linux Mint Gnome does this well, & Zorin has even went a step further by including Open Shot Video Editor & VLC Media Player by Default .
These extra default Apps seem well thought out, without being overkill.
This is where Zorin Differs From all other Distros = Zorin has went a step further by including some "Speciality Custom Applications" for installing Web Browsers, Also a Look Changer & an Boot Screen Selector.
All in all I found Zorin Core 4 to be a well planned & thought out release, that preforms better than expected & as well as it looks.
Hopefully Linux Mint will come up with some of these implementations as well & we will continue to rise in the ranks
