Description: "The Zorin OS team is proud to release Zorin OS 5 Lite, the lightweight edition of our operating system designed for Windows users using old and low-specification computers. We have released this version ahead of schedule. This new version of Zorin OS Lite is based on Lubuntu 11.04 and uses the LXDE desktop environment, which brings new and updated packages. Many program changes were also made to increase size efficiency and to improve the overall experience. Most notable in this release is that it can now fit on a CD. We have removed WINE, VLC, a few games and other programs to save space and included them into our new and exclusive program, the 'Zorin OS Lite Extra Software'."
Keywords: Lubuntu-based LXDE

Pros: Easy transition from Windows XP
Cons: some packages are broken in installation package

Installed easily and good desktop for those coming from Windows XP. Same look and feel. Similar file system setup for your own files.

Need to run Wine for a few programs and it was broken in the installation package. It can still be installed by going to Wine HQ, but not as easy for a new user to Linux, as Zorin is advertised.
