NewsOld fart tries out Zorin OS Pin

After reading positive reviews about Zorin OS, an Ubuntu based Linux distro, I decided to try out the Lite version.
See: Zorin OS 16 is exactly what a Linux desktop distribution should be - TechRepublic[^]

Installing on an old laptop from an USB drive went smoothly, even an old NVidia graphics card was detected.
It was quite a surprise that everything went so smoothly considering I don't have any Linux experience.
Also everything a normal user could want is pre-installed, like a browser, an office-suite, some simple games and several handy utilities Shucks | :-\

But not being a normal user I went looking for trouble: hey let's install Visual Studio Code and try out .NET Core 6.0 I thought.
Not being used to Visual Studio Code, that did not go very smoothly and especially installing the .NET Core SDK and getting VS Code to work with it was a painful experience.
I ended up spending half a day to get a simple "Hello World" example working Sigh | :sigh:

So for the time being I think I will not continue my coding adventures in VS Code ...
