Zorin 12 IS Here!


I downloaded it last night and am setting it up now. So far everything is running smoothly. I love the map and weather apps. I'm giving Chromium a try, but not signing in to the Chrome Store. Also, changed my search to Duck Duck, and using the new tab as my opening page, to have (hopefully) nothing to do with Google.

Not signing in makes things more difficult, such as importing favorites, but it's worth it in my opinion. I do like how fast and stable Chromium is. Hopefully, doing things this way will avoid the Google integration that Zorin 12 comes with.

If things keep working this well, I would have to say that Zorin 12 is a major release, and a worthy alternative to Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora etc.

Things are continuing to go smoothly with Zorin 12. It is fast becoming my every day Linux distro (the others are Ubuntu and Deepin). I am using Core, which is free, but I also purchased Ultimate, more as a way to donate, although I will probably give it a try somewhere down the road.

I'm a bit surprised by the lack of comments here about Zorin 12. I thought this was the most active Linux forum on the internet - ???

Unfortunately it not quite there yet but it is getting up in ranking according to https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=zorin . I like this OS as well, noticeably it's accessibility and the possibly of running a number of windows' programs.

I do hope this OS does take off and keep on being a nice OS to use.
