Zorin OS 15.3 Officially Released, Based on Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS

Filed under

Zorin OS 15.3 comes six months after the release of Zorin OS 15.2 to offer those who want to deploy the Ubuntu-based operating system on new computers an up-to-date installation media, based on the latest Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS (Bionic Beaver) release.

This means that Zorin OS 15.3 is powered by a new kernel, namely Linux 5.4 LTS, from the Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa) operating system series, which is also shipping with the Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS release by default.

Of course, Zorin OS 15.3 also inherits all of Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS’s updated components, such as the latest LibreOffice 6.4.6 office suite, Mozilla Firefox 80.0.1 web browser, and many others.

  • Zorin OS 15.3 Linux distro can replace buggy Microsoft Windows 10 on your PC

    So, here we are in September, six months removed from the release of Zorin OS 15.2. A lot has happened since March -- a pandemic, civil unrest, and out-of-control wildfires are just a few of the things that have made this year quite stressful. Not all is bad, however, as we have football starting up this week -- a great distraction to life's stresses.

    Today we also get some big news on the Linux front -- Zorin OS 15.3 is finally here. True, it is just a point release, but once again, it should be the best version of Zorin yet. While great for Linux experts, I highly recommend it to those looking to switch from the buggy and much-maligned Windows 10. Zorin OS is a stable and well-designed operating system that is reminiscent of Windows. And so, its familiarity is a great way for Windows users to comfortably experience Linux. Version 15.3 comes with LibreOffice 6.4.6, which is a great alternative to Microsoft Office.

  • Zorin OS 15.3 is here: Our most advanced OS gets even better

    We’re excited to launch the new, upgraded, and enhanced version of Zorin OS 15 – our most advanced and popular release ever.

    Since the Zorin OS 15 was first launched in June 2019, it has been downloaded over 1.7 million times. Over 65% of these downloads came from proprietary platforms like Windows and macOS, reflecting our mission to bring the power of Linux to new people and to grow the community for the benefit of all. We’ve been working ever since to make Zorin OS 15 even more powerful, accessible, and user-friendly with updates and point releases.

  • A New Version of Zorin OS is Now Available

    Zorin OS is one of those distributions that users love, because it offers tons of options. Users can work with a typical Linux desktop, one that resembles Windows, or a desktop that is decidedly very macOS-like. No matter which interface you use, it’s still very much Linux underneath.

    With the latest release of Zorin OS, you’ll find new versions of software, as well as Zorin Connect, which allows you to easily connect your Android phone to the desktop. The latest version of Zorin Connect improves the auto search for devices on trusted Wi-Fi networks, adds quick buttons to send files and clipboard contents, supports the latest Android release, and includes performance and stability enhancements.

7 Amazing Linux Distributions For Kids

Linux is a very powerful operating system and that is one of the reasons why it powers a lot of servers on the Internet. Though there have been concerns about its user-friendliness which has brought about the debate of how it will overtake Mac OSX and Windows on desktop computers, I think users need to accept Linux as it is to realize its real power. Today, Linux powers a lot of machines out there, from mobile phones to tablets, laptops, workstations, servers, supercomputers, cars, air traffic control systems, refrigerators, and many more. With all this and more yet to come in the near future, as I had already stated at the beginning, Linux is the operating system for future computing. Because the future belongs to the kids of today, then introducing them to technologies that will change the future is the way to go. Therefore they have to be introduced at an early stage to start learning computer technologies and Linux as a special case.

Having looked at some quick reasons why kids should learn Linux, let us now go through a list of exciting Linux distributions that you can introduce your kids to so that they can start using and learning Linux.
