Oh great! Another Distro! Why do we need another.

There are 27 distros listed. Do we need another? What makes this one special?

"looks very Windows-like" At least that is a reson to spend the time down loading, installing, testing and reformating another "pretty" distro. If you can't make it functional make it pretty.

A Big Welcome to Zorin OS

I LOVE ZORIN OS. For newer PCs with 3d graphics capabilities, it can't be beat. flash, mp3, wine, winetricks, Play on Linux, etc. and that is just the older LTS 6.3 version. I can't wait to try the new Zorin OS 7.


So, a big warm welcome from the bottom of my heart.

I recommend anyone and everyone who has a spare minute, try this great distro yourself!

So it's supposed to look like Windows and is based on UBUNTU which is itself based on Debian? How does this make it any different than Mint then? Versions are twigs, Distros are branches, UBUNTU is the tree, Debian is the root, the Kernel is the Earth and Linus is our Deity. I'm sick of hanging in the branches I'm going back to the roots.

I've been running Zorin for awhile now, and it does everything I need. I've tried about 30 other Ubuntu based distros, and none of them satisfied me like Zorin has.
