ZORIN OS

As mention, any sifu or user using this version?? Mind to share your two piece of thought? I wanna try this version, but this is not my first time using Linux. Being using Ubuntu, Red Hat, Fedora and Mint before. Also BeOS and Haiku on Unix..
Thanks for your feedback 😎

All linux distro is the same lah. Normally linux distro have two part.
engine part - debian, ubuntu, arch
desktop part - kde plasma, openbox, gnome, xfce, mate etc
zorin is ubuntu with desktop theme look like windows. tweak here tweak there.

That I know.. what I want to know is the experience from users. Like how well the OS when it comes to long term used and so on..

The website is too pretty to be a serious linux distro.

Have passed by the name, but was never interested (as too many linux distro around, and my laptop is getting old fast...). Will try to see if it's worth a try on weekends.

Hello!

So far, I've tried for a week. Not much I did, since I rarely used my laptop when I got back from work ( too tired).

What I do notice are the compatibility of the Zorin OS Core (free one) seems efficient and smooth on my old Sony VAIO VPCEA35FG, when compared to that, the Ubuntu 18.04 I used before this lagged from time to time.

The pre-installed Wine is a nice thought,rather than having to install it manually (not that hard, but still, if you're emulating Windows, it's important to have the tools that allows to run Windows apps from the start). The theme with the taskbar on the bottom imitates Windows, with the Start Menu. But you can also opt for the Unity-like launcher . I'm not sure if it has docking one like Mac (doesn't really care either).

Other than that, it's a standard Linux / Ubuntu distro, in terms of terminal prompts, software center.

What it excels is that rather than gearing for developers or those who really want to turn towards something less Windows and more Unix, it simplifies through its interface (and pretty too), allowing easy transitioning from Windows to Ubuntu without having to rely on tutorials.

used to use zorin for a while, until i have no need for GUI anymore 90% of the time now (it's all on my VM/NAS, and if I want a GUI, I'd use elementary OS). As far as distros are concerned, zorin is pretty much....... complete. use it if you want a full complete OS, kinda like windows.

a personal quick of mine is linux's control panel gui/system. zorin and elementary does it almost perfectly. if you want compatibility, use zorin. no question about it.
