    It is an excellent distro. I have purchased the ultimate version and I am very satisfied with its features. It has been almost four years since I left Windows for Gnu Linux and after trying many distributions I opted for Zorin Os. The reasons? It is very similar to Windows, therefore its learning curve is very low. In addition, the ultimate version is very complete and supports, which has been very valuable for a newbie like me.
    Therefore, Zorin Os 12 Ultimate became my official operating system on my computers. I use it for both work and leisure. My family, who had never used Gnu Linux, have had no problem adapting, on the contrary.
    Zorin Os 15 Ultimate is much more stable than the previous one, faster, and all the programs are updated in their latest version.
    For all these reasons I recommend Zorin Os 15, especially for newcomers to the wonderful world of Gnu Linux.
