Zorin: That is Flexibility!

I will start off by saying that I am a 67 year old retired male who is only moderately computer savvy.

I started out using Linux with the Mandrake version about 8 years ago as an experiment. I was upset with Windows 95 & 98 because it would continuously freeze up and eventually would ruin the hard drive. Not to mention the virus problems.

I tried Lindows for a while because I liked their repository and the ease at which one could download and install programs. After a few years Lindows which had changed its name to Linspire was discontinued so I switched to Ubuntu with the KDE GUI desktop.

About 2 years ago I tried Zorin 6.0 and have used it and upgraded it on one of my computers since. I especially like the Zorin OS desktop experience because I can change it to look like Windows 7 or like Mac. That is flexibility! I also enjoy the Ubuntu type repository system!

I feel that anyone who has never tried Linux and wants to convert over to Linux from Windows should try a Linux system that is most like Windows - that would be Zorin.

This is a guest post by Harry S. Durham, which took part in the joint Zorin OS contest.

  1. Good call - Zorin is a great OS. I find myself alternating between it and Linux Mint for a hassle-free non-Windows experience. I am ten years younger than you, so I will defer to your experience!

  2. Good choice. However, I would also recommend Ubuntu GNOME as in my opinion it is the most easy to use desktop environment. Just saying.
