Zorin OS

Post by Jamiec1130 » Mon Jan 30, 2017 11:06 pm

How many people out there use Zorin OS? I've used it recently on one of my spare laptops, and it has proved itself really useful.

I've never used it before, but I've heard great things about it. I especially like the theming to look like Windows

Yeah, I like the overall navigation of it. It is familiar enough, but also includes some nice differences.

I've never heard of it, but I might give it a try. I've been using Windows for my whole life and even when I tried to switch to linux based operation systems I had to go back to Windows because of all this time you have to spend tweaking before making them work the way you want. (And if you come from Windows, you (probably) want your system work like Windows, lol. I know, it's wrong.) Soooo, they're saying it's a good replacement for Windows. Well, I'm curious.

I like the theme, and love the simple "start" menu. There are some linux OSes that have those menus looking like abominations.

I haven't tried Zorin OS either. But I am curious of it, because it is an alternative to Windows, as it looks like Windows from it's GUI. :P

I actually use it as my day to day operating system on my laptop and I must say that it works very well. I did start off with the free version but then after about three months, I did pay for the operating system and it was well worth it.

ZorinOS is probably one of the best distros for newbies. Just gonna say that, I use it when I can but right now stuck on Ubuntu (not even a cool flavor like Kubuntu or the one I am helping start up, Ubuntu Cinnamon). I would 100% say use ZorinOS

Mint does the job the same. I haven't used either, but generally just using cinnamon with any distro works fine for a win-like experience.
