Ubuntu 12.10 review - Why so regressive?

Without much further ado, please follow me.

An Everyday Linux User Review Of Zorin 12

I think Zorin should follow Mint's lead and stick with aligning itself to the Ubuntu LTS release. This gives the developers more time to push it along at their own pace. All in all a decent alternative to Linux Mint and Ubuntu. Read more
