Yeesh. I rebuilt my ThinkPad yesterday, moving from Fedora to Zorin , and got around to my Mycroft configuration sometime around 1:30 in the morning today. Could NOT get things working with the AWS Polly TTS. I spent at LEAST 90 minutes today going back and fixing what my sleep deprived brain screwed up last night. It turns out I'm not in my 20s anymore, and my brain doesn't work as well as it used to in the wee hours of the morning.
@mike I tried Zorin on the previous version, I think I actually bought it too. It’s a great distro that doesn’t get enough air time IMO.
@mike @kev I too don't think Zorin looks like elementary, but it has that same vibe of clean, well thought out UI and attention to detail.
Although the GNOME vertical workspaces feel weird to me on Zorin, I'm enjoying having a system tray, multi source software centre, a little more control, and the more charcoal dark mode UI is much more to my liking and fits with my preference for Nord colours.
The one thing I really miss from elementary is the Super-F floating window, a better YouTube popup!
@kev @ianmjones They offer several different layout options that you can choose from as part of the initial configuration, and I chose the Win11ish one. Even had the centered task bar when it started, but I moved stuff around to be a little bit more traditional. I like the way the app menu worked the best for that configuration.
