Zorin OS 15.2 arrives improving security and hardware compatibility

Zorin OS 15.2

Just under three months after the earlier version, the team that develops one of the distros that draws the most attention to switchers that come from Windows has launched Zorin OS 15.2. It is not an update of the most important that is remembered, but it does follow the successful path of v15 of the operating system that, as we can read in the release note, has brought more than 900.000 Windows and macOS users to Linux in the last 9 months.

As with every new release of virtually any operating system, the operating system has taken advantage of the new release to update its kernel and has now switched to using Linux 5.3. Zorin OS is based on Ubuntu and the kernel version that it will use from today is the same as the one that has been using the system developed by Canonical since October 2019, specifically coinciding with the launch of Ubuntu 19.10 Eoan Ermine.

Zorin OS 15.2: Linux 5.3, updated applications and more secure

Among the most outstanding novelties of this version, we have:

  • Linux 5.3.
  • The developer team says that in this release they have wanted to focus on refining the operating system.
  • Security, compatibility and performance improvements have been added, some of them related to the new kernel that they have included.
  • Support has been added for new hardware, such as AMD Navi GPUs, including the Radeon RX 5700, Intel's 10th Gen processors, or the latest keyboards and touchpads from the newer MacBook and MacBook Pro.
  • In addition, Zorin OS 15.2 has included new applications, more specifically the latest versions of software such as LibreOffice or GIMP.

For interested users, new ISO images are available in this link. For those who have never tried it and want to know what it is like to work with Zorin for the first time, we recommend starting a Live Session with emulation software such as GNOME Boxes.

    I find it an excellent distribution. I have used it for a long time both at work and for home use.
    Although it has some similarities to Linux Mint in the sense of facilitating entry into the Gnu Linux world, its approach is different.
    Unlike Mint Zorin it is not as configurable, which makes it easier for newcomers to use Windows. It brings Zorin connect which is ideal to use the mobile on the PC. Its update cycle when it comes to programs and security is much more continuous and permanent, unlike Mint. As for Zorin ultimate paid, (which seems good to me since the developers have to finance the project in some way) its imprint is not given by the additional programs it brings but by the fact that it receives support from the developers, which is thanks.
    In short, it is a solid, stable, modern, beautiful, easy-to-use distribution, ideal for newbies.
