"Zorin OS 4 was just released earlier this month. Why should you consider it? Here are just a few reasons.

"Zorin OS also comes with software including Wine and PlayOnLinux that let users run many Windows programs. The distribution's ultimate goal is 'to provide a Linux alternative to Windows and let Windows users enjoy all the features of Linux without complications,' in the project's own words.
