I have been looking at Linux operating systems and really want one specific operating system which is Zorin OS. My only problem is I don't know if the Alienware Command Center will still be available for me to use and if it will work right. As you probably know there are the lights on the sides and front of the Alienware X51 R3 and it can be changed to what you want. But if I were to install this operating system, would these lights still be on? Would I still be able to change them? And the Alienware Command Center, would I still be able to turn overclocking on in it's menu? The main question is can I get Zorin OS and still have the functions that are unique to this Alienware system.

I have openSUSE Linux installed on my Alienware X51 R3. I cannot use Alienware Command Center under Linux since it is a Windows only application.
Under Linux, the lights are still on but I can't change the color. I can still overclock the RAM in BIOS, but not in the OS.
