Zorin OS 15 Lite arrives with support for Snap and Flatpak after the installation of zero, among other novelties

Zorin OS 15 lite

Last June, Zorin released a new version of its operating system. It was about Zorin OS 15, the latest installment of an operating system that has been designed with users who are used to using Windows in mind. Almost four months later, the company released the same update for its Education version and today, two months after the education version, the company launched Zorin OS 15 Lite.

Zorin OS is available in 4 different options, only the most complete version called Ultimate being paid. If we do not need full support, and if we do not want the most basic version (Core) or the educational one, what they have launched today is the most interesting option for most users. Based on Ubuntu 18.04, Zorin OS 15 Lite has arrived with the most outstanding novelties of Zorin OS 15. You have the most interesting after the cut.

Zorin OS 15 Lite highlights

  • Linux 5.0.
  • Based on Ubuntu 18.04, with support until April 2023.
  • XFCE 4.14 based desktop.
  • New look desktop, including new animations and new colors. There are also light and dark themes.
  • Automatic theme change, which changes from light to dark theme depending on the time of day. This is a further twist on options like the Night Color available in Ubuntu.
  • Support for Flatpak and Snap after zero installation. Support for Snap packages was already available since Zorin 12, but Flatpak has been added that allows us to add repositories like Flathub.
  • Notification indicator and Do Not Disturb mode.
  • Many internal improvements and system applications.

Interested users can download Zorin OS 15 Lite from this link. Is available in 64-bit and 32-bit versionsWhich makes sense because, among other things, Zorin touts its operating system as one that can bring older computers running with less than 2GB of RAM to life.

    I love Zorin os. It is my main operating system, both for work and home use. Its ease of use, similar to Windows, makes it the ideal distribution for newcomers to Gnu Linux.

    I love this system, I discovered it recently (as I regret) in its 12.4 lite version, I am going to install the 15 lite… .. It was a new life for my mini laptop with an atom n455, gma 3150, 2gb and 512gb hdd….

    It goes more fluid than windows 7 ... in fact it has a dualboot and nothing to see, perfect for downloading bitorrent

    Excellent alternative to Windows 7, if it works like the Ubuntu distros, I'll install it for sure. In my case, I have a Toshiba Satellite in very good condition, in particular, I have nothing against the new, or proprietary software, everyone has their own, but in the case of Linux it is a blessing to have people who They think of others, and some "old" equipment is extremely robust and durable, not only in the keyboard but in most of its parts, I do not see why they 'have to be discarded if they can be' revitalized '. Many portable computers, new, powerful and at the same time light, when you use them intensively it seems that they are going to disarm. It is not possible to have everything in life ...

    I tried Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Linux Mint, Ubuntu MATE, on old laptops and no distribution convinced me, Xubuntu just a little, it was the one that gave me the least errors, but it was difficult to use for people who do not know that free software exists , until I decided to update and almost the whole system failed, it was when I changed to Ubuntu, in the end it also gave me errors and since my WiFi usb antenna died, for my favorite desktop PC, I use that laptop as a repeater only and as a secondary system to research something and not turn off my favorite (to play).

    I tried Zorin OS 15 Lite and now I have it installed on 4 computers, 2 old laptops, a desktop with 3gb in ram ddr2, and my favorite where I have dual boot, along with Windows 10, but I have stopped using Windows, despite I have it installed on an SSD, I'm only going to use it to play, but lately I play more on android. I think that Zorin is the system that will convince me to leave Windows almost forever, I highly recommend the lite version, which is the one I am using.

    Something that is certain is that I say goodbye forever to the very functional Windows 7, but without support I do not want to have the conflicts that I had at the time with the very powerful Windows XP. In my experience the best of Windows for home use: 2000, XP and 7, everything else was very conflicting with hardware and software; on linux I liked Kubuntu, but Linux definitely convinced me with Zorin.

    I am testing the Zorin 15, and since I have already had problems with the wifi, apparently it does not detect the network card and I do not know how to install it manually, I have followed some tutorials and even now I have not managed to make it work. I leave my email in case anyone can help me wi.javier.ro.na@gmail.com I use a Lanix Neuron Al v8 laptop

      William, maybe it will help you to install a network card via usb, I use one and it works great, you rarely use all the usb ports and these cards are very small. It is 10 for me….
