Who said that? The DE that one chooses to use is totally a matter of taste and how one organizes his/her workflow. Has nothing to do if one is stupid or not.

Canoncial in general, in particular the marketing department, seem to treat us as though we are stupid.

If unity works for you, use it if you want. Dont expect the rest of us to use it for various reasons.

No.

I had no problems to run a 64 bit version of Debian (without GUI) in Virtualbox on a 32 bit host.

Yeah, you're right. I should have RTFM properly.

I am using Dell Inspiron notebook of intel core i5, i can run zorin from the DVD as live, but after i installed it on the HDD, no problem encountered in installation, but during rebooting, I choose the Zorin os to boot, it hanged half way and can not boot into the OS.
i am not sure why?
The live testing shows that this OS is quite nice.
i wish to use it but it just does not work for me.

Zorin live DVD booting has flashplayer auto activated,
so when you browse to certain websites, it will not prompt you missing plugins
