Zorin OS 12.2: the new version of the well-known distro returns with news

Zorin OS 12.2

We already have the announcement and the launch of a new version of this well-known GNU / Linux distribution, I'm talking about Zorin OS 12.2. This new version brings interesting changes, such as being based on Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS (Xenial Xerus) and with a Linux 4.10 kernel to have an engine that moves the operating system with a more updated version than previous Zorin OS releases. By implementing a newer kernel we also have support for more modern hardware devices by implementing more current drivers.

Besides that, the Zorin OS 12.2 distribution includes some additional improvements such as the typical bug fixes found and also performance-related improvements and improved usability, something that many users will appreciate. Zorin's desktop environment has also been revamped with support for the full size of docked windows when hovering the mouse cursor over panel window previews. In addition to that, the rest of the pre-installed packages in this distribution have also been updated to newer versions.

Remember that Zorin OS is a distribution that is designed for a good adaptation of users who come from operating systems Microsoft Windows, since its desktop environment closely resembles the Redmond GUI. And apart from offering a better experience for these types of users, it also allows you to run native Microsoft Windows software thanks to the Wine project. Zorin OS 12.2 integrates a new version of this compatibility layer to be able to install software such as Microsoft Office 2013 and other types of programs and video games for the Microsoft platform.

From the download area you can also download this version or others available. By the way, you already know that to keep the project active, you can choose to download the Zorin OS Ultimate edition for about € 19 or directly download the Zorin OS Core Essential version that is more limited for € 0 by entering that figure in the download area or make any donation ...
