    " Much better then when you use grub and ms kicks in to restore their boot."
    I've never had this happen. Don't no at what point this happens to you. New install, updates..?

    I had this issue in the past, used mint 17 in dual boot. Got a windows 10 update and for some reason ms fixed it's own bootloader.

    I installed ZOS16 on my Toughbook, but it appears kernel parameters aren't being accepted anymore, so no more brightness control for me :(

    I might change to Zorin OS if I cannot install WIndows 11 by October on the release date. It seems to be the best alternative.

    yep same here I'm also thinking a alot about this; it's more logical for me to pay only $39 than having to change all my hardware to just have the status of being Windows 11 doesn't even think about it...;)

    Why is zorin os the best alternative to windows when it looks so similar to all distros?

    I found it buggy, frankly...

    But it looks like Winblows, so then... the devil you know...

    It's stable here, the only issue i had with zorin is boot time. It took 15 seconds longer to boot compared to pop! os. So i made the switch to pop os back in the end of augustus, still using it and i am very pleased :).

    Games like Halo the Masterchief collection and Mass Effect Legendary edition works just great under linux...i did not even expect that.
