还是 Media Player Classic 家庭影院版最好,简单有效,不喜欢太华丽的界面,喧宾夺主的感觉。

I've been playing Hearts (both on-line and stand-alone) on my Windows computers for a lonnng time and this is a welcome addition to my game box, since I'm not always near one of my computers, but I always have that #%$@! electronic ball-and-chain with me.

Zorin OS 11 Is Here 1 year 6 months ago willrun4fun

I would recommend waiting if you do want to install this. 11 is based on Ubuntu 15 which is not an LTS release. When Ubuntu 16LTS drops here soon Zorin should follow.

view
Zorin OS 11 Is Here 1 year 6 months ago MidnightCowboy I agree. Security updates for V11 are only up to July of this year. I still have Zorin 9, the current LTS, installed on one system and this will receive updates until April 2019. MC - Site Manager. view
Zorin OS 11 Is Here 1 year 6 months ago vandamme

Zorin 11 came out on Feb. 3, and it's based on the old Ubuntu LTS (has Linux kernel 4.2.0). Okay, that won't mean much for noobs, but it does lag quite a bit, even more than Mint. It's pretty, and does look like Windows (or Mac, if that's how you roll) but there are more cutting edge beginner distros, like Ubuntu MATE. I put it on my dad's PC (he's 94); it works like a charm. Things are easier to find in a menu, so you don't have to clutter up your desktop with shortcuts.

It's #11 on the distrowatch list, so it's pretty popular.

Windows users can shrink their drive to create some free space and then dual-boot a Zorin installation into this, choosing which system to use at boot. Alternatively (my preferred option and safer) you can wipe Windows completely, install Zorin as the main operating system and then re-install Windows into VirtualBox. Here's a screenshot of Windows 7 running as a guest OS on Zorin 9 inside VirtualBox. MC - Site Manager.

Looks Like I should try Zorin again.

Years ago (about 2?) I tried it on a decommissioned 2.4Ghz i3 with 4GB ex Vista 64bit HP computer and MAN, was the box SLOW! It was installed, not running from a USB stick!

I immediately discarded it in favor of Linux Lite which still happens to be my favorite LTS Windows alternative.

Well, it seems I was on the receiving end of YMMV. ;-)

Zorin OS 11 Is Here 1 year 6 months ago bootneck02

Hi all, until 15th December I was a Windows 10 user after having been Window8.1 user, and was disillusioned with the niggles and and all the problems with data mining etc. I did try Zorin which was OK but did not like their annual upgrades or the fact of the distro is based the very outdated Ubuntu base. I am now running Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon 64bit LTS and have found that it suits my needs superbly well and enjoying using it.

view
Zorin OS 11 Is Here 1 year 6 months ago br1anstorm

The idea of moving to Windows 8 or 10 from Windows 7 didn't appeal to me, so I looked at Linux options. I considered Zorin and tried it for a while. It was attractive, but a bit "gimmicky" - and I did not feel I needed the various visual options, many of which were quite resource-hungry. To cut a long story short, I have ended up with Linux Mint XFCE as my first choice, with Linux Lite as a close second. Both run fast and flawless on my not-very-high-powered laptop.

I did not want to abandon Windows 7 completely (it remains on my laptop as the original OS) as I still use some software that was designed for Windows. For those thinking of switching, there are easier and less radical options than wiping a Windows install completely. It is always possible to try out any Linux distro in a "Live" session, by downloading it as an ISO image and running it from a CD or DVD - this will run a bit slower than a full install, but allows the testing-out of wifi and similar features.

But there are better ways of having the best of both worlds (Windows and Linux). It is possible to install any - or several - Linux distros on an external hard drive, and then use the BIOS boot options to choose whether to boot from the Internal (Win7) hard drive or the external (Linux) drive.

Alternatively, partition the internal drive and set up a dual boot with Windows and Linux. For those who are unhappy that this replaces the Windows bootloader with the Linux one (aka GRUB) there is a further option: use EasyBCD, a software program that installs in Windows and enables the booting up of other OSs without losing or modifying the original Windows bootloader.

A further joy of Linux is that it is possible (and not difficult) to run more than one distro - and also continue to run Windows - and to have all your files/folders/documents/pics etc saved in a shared partition which can be accessed by whichever OS you happen to want to use.

Finally, whichever Linux distro(s) you prefer, I echo the advice given in other comments: choose a version which is based on a Long Term Support (LTS) release of the underlying Linux OS architecture (Ubuntu or whatever). Or go for a Linux distro which is a "rolling release", such as PCLinuxOS, which in theory should seldom, if ever, require reinstallation in order to upgrade as it is constantly and continuously updated.

Zorin OS 11 Is Here 1 year 6 months ago crombierob

My PCs are old, so my criteria would be -
- Light on resources
- Has good availability of programs (applications)
- It does not have to match windows interface 100%, but not be too much of a PIA to learn
- Able to access my files/folders in my installed Windows (XP or W7)
- Can run from a bootable USB thumb drive

Which would best suit the above ?

Can anyone point me to a good article for placing it on a USB Thumb drive ?
(Do some of the distro's provide a tool to do that for you ?)

Zorin OS 11 Is Here 1 year 6 months ago MidnightCowboy

There are so many possibilities to choose from and of course everyone has their favorites. The good news is most can be previewed using a live session DVD or USB drive. You will find instructions for doing this easily enough via the chosen distro's own documentation or from links in their forum. There are YouTube video tutorials covering most distros too. Using a live session will enable you to play around with the included programs and settings and doing so will also show up any possible incompatibilities with your hardware. There are two distros in particular others will no doubt chastise me for not including but based on my own experiences I would recommend to look at Q4OS, MX-15, Zorin Lite and Peppermint.

Windows users often moan about the learning curve associated with moving to Linux, yet they manage to master a smart phone well enough. :) In any case, I'm sure you will find it time well spent. Our own Linux forum will offer support if you need it. MC - Site Manager.

Rob - it sounds as if you are in exactly the same situation as I was: using XP and Win7 on old-ish laptops, and wanting a light-on-resources and easy-to-use Linux alternative.

I respect MC's recommendations and don't want to start a debate over the "best" Linux distro (different strokes suit different folks). But I offer a few tips:

1) Some older computers have what are called non-PAE processors. Google for details. But there are various Linux distros which don't work well with non-PAE processors. You may need to check, as this may limit your range of options;

2) There are some Linux distros specifically designed for smaller less powerful computers/laptops. Puppy Linux is just one example. Very lightweight, but also very basic and so probably not really adequate for most users;

3) One of the main variables in Linux is what is called the Desktop Environment (DE) - basically the package of features which makes up the user-interface and makes the system look and perform the way it does. It's largely a matter of taste as to which DE people prefer, as the layout and appearance on screen can vary quite significantly. But like the Windows "Aero" interface, the more fancy the DE (3D effects, wiggly windows, and other visual tricks) the heavier its resource-use and/or the slower it runs on old computers. So it is worth exploring the different DEs offered by different distros. I'm no expert. But for example, the Cinnamon DE (in Linux Mint) and the KDE one (in PCLinuxOS) are much heavier on resources than the XFCE and MATE versions;

4) Most Linux distros can be installed on a USB thumb drive. One useful source of information on this is http://www.pendrivelinux.com/ . But you don't need any special tools. With most distros, it's possible simply to follow the installation instructions and choose the thumb drive as the location on which to install. You just have to remember to put the Linux bootloader (GRUB) on to the thumb drive as well (careful: because the default is usually for the Linux bootloader to overwrite and replace the Windows bootloader);

5) My advice would be - read up and research first. There are lots of good reviews on the internet. I would also add, try the Linux distros that are fairly well-established and long-running, and which have a good user-community and forum (most Linux users are both enthusiastic and helpful). Some distros have a limited shelf-life, a small user community, and flourish for a while then disappear. Some (ArchLinux?) are complicated and mainly for serious geeks.

6) So what about my personal choices? YMMV. I found Zorin easy to use but a bit gimmicky, and it is still a fairly new distro (with a helpful user forum). I didn't like the Ubuntu "Unity" desktop (which is more like Apple's Mac, and unfamiliar to XP/7 users) - and I found the various Ubuntu forums too geeky and technical. I tried LXLE because it was lightweight, but I didn't like its desktop. I have ended up using Linux Mint with the XFCE desktop, and I also use Linux Lite. Both have outstandingly good forums with helpful users who talk in plain language. My third choice is PCLinuxOS, a well-proven rolling release with again, a dedicated user-community.

Whatever you choose, good luck. You will be surprised at how quickly you adapt to Linux..... and pleased at how much more satisfying than XP or Win7.

I am convinced that presently there is no need to download or install software on our PCs to get done most of our daily tasks.
That is why your advise to use iTools is a very valuable one.

Seems somewhat strange that you would be visiting a site like this if you felt downloading software was unnecessary. In any event it's a win/win situation because they offer articles here on how to get rid of the pre-installed bloatware that comes with most computers.

view
Your Portal To The Best Free Online Tools 1 year 11 months ago MidnightCowboy crosseyedlemon makes a very valid point but just a word of caution regarding software such as PC Decrapifier. Often the results when using such tools are ambiguous to say the least and you can soon break parts of your Windows system or inhibit the ability to restore it should the need arise at a later date. I would advise researching any potentially unwanted components individually before attempting to remove them. MC - Site Manager. view

A good start, but lots is still missing from iTools (unless I just couldn't find it). Where are the websites for online:
* PDF creation
* Audio/video file format conversion
* Graphics files format conversion
* Drawing tools
* etc., etc. etc.

I'm guessing this is a work in progress, so I'll check back from time to time to see.

The responses from crosseyed and MC seem to talk about different things. I have yet to find a computer that brings PC Decrapifier pre installed with it from the factory. And naturally I second the notion that every brand name computer should be cleaned up BEFORE it's put on the Internet the first time.

I strongly second the warning against PC Decrapifier; a customer had bought it some time ago and I saw it on his machine.
In the end it presented a list with remove/leave alone choices that the poor customer could not make. And that was what he had spent money on. Maybe newer versions are somewhat better but I doubt it.

At first I thought, this almost seems illegal, M/S using my OS to spread their crapola around on my dime. Then I remembered, it's their OS. At least they graciously allow me to turn it off so I don't have to break the terms of my legally binding agreement by reverse engineering.

That's funny. Microsoft already got you as a beta tester for 10, now they have you as a distributor. I only think it's funny because I don't use it.
I torrent Linux distros, but I have to opt in, of course. It's the least I can do to help spread Linux. The problem is that I have cable internet, and the upload is a tenth the speed of the download.

How nice of MS to spread this little xxx around for FREE. I figured there had to be some kind of catch. I'm glad I decided to wait for the "bugs" to get worked out. I'm thinking perhaps I'd better wait 10 or 11 months before downloading the "free" Windows 10. Or perhaps it's time to start buying retail versions, but those might be bugged as well.

I recall MS stepping up to the plate and issuing a fix to fix the Sony fix, that was supposed to fix the Sony fix, that was supposed to fix the Sony rootkit. Now it sound like the MS heroism may have just been a big confidence scam as I am sure MS new full well that this little update bot scam would eventually crash and burn. Makes me wonder what other little blunders they've got in store for us.
