"Zorin OS 4 was just released earlier this month. Why should you
consider it? Here are just a few reasons.
"Much like the Ubuntu base that underlies it, Zorin OS is
designed especially for newcomers to Linux. It has a Windows-like
graphical user interface and many programs similar to those found
"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.
"What this means, of course, is that Zorin OS is a great
distribution for those who are comfortable with the look and feel
of Windows, but still want to see what Linux is all about.
Alternatively, it can be perfect for employees or coworkers who
don't like change."
