Zorin OS 4 Review

Filed under
Linux

Recently I have reviewed a number of interesting Ubuntu derivatives. Linux Mint is probably the most popular one, but other more obscure picks like MoonOS and PinguyOS also proved to be very interesting options. In future articles I also plan to review Bodhi Linux, but this time I want to talk about Zorin 4 OS, which is based off of Ubuntu 10.10.

WINUSERS COME AND HELP YOURSELVES

An interesting twist on your typical GNOME desktop, Zorin intentionally resembles a Windows 7 desktop visually. The panel positioning, the main menu Look&Feel, the launchers on the panel and even the wallpapers, all convey a Windows vibe to them. I personally don't think there is anything wrong with that. I like Windows 7 Look&Feel myself and it's not like Zorin is a verbatim copy (they could have got a lot closer using certain control, icon and window decoration themes). The idea is to make new users who know Windows feel right at home, and I must say Zorin succeeds.
