Zorin OS It is a Linux distribution that we have already talked about in this blog and that is based on Ubuntu. Now we announce Zorin OS 9, the new version of this distro for desktop. It has similarities with Ubuntu and Linux Mint, it is simple and especially aimed at users who come from Microsoft's Windows platform.
The philosophy of this operating system is to become a simple and easy-to-use system, so that users not experienced in Linux can use a system based on this kernel without hardly noticing it. Especially if they come from Windows, with a fairly similar interface.
Zorin OS 9 will be updated to 2019, where your support will end. So this extended support will give some stability to the users of this distro. Its main features can be seen at a glance, a graphical interface similar to Windows XP or 7 thanks to themes for GNOME.
The minimum requirements They are a 1Ghz x86 or x86-64 processor, 5GB of hard disk, 512MB of RAM memory and graphics capable of supporting a resolution of 640 × 480 px. As you see some requirements not too demanding.
Although the distribution It is free for its editions Core (basic version with GNOME desktop), Lite (for computers with few hardware resources) and Educational (designed for students), there is also a paid version called Premium. For a small amount of money you can count on the Premium Business editions (for small and medium-sized companies, with accounting software, databases, management, ...), Premium Multimedia (especially for audio editing, graphic design, 3D modeling, etc. .), Premium Gaming (with a large number of games) and Premium Ultimate (a version similar to Windows 7 Ultimate, which includes everything that the previous versions contain).
The free versions look similar to Windows, while the Premium It provides an environment like Mac OS X. Although in Premium you can also choose themes similar to Windows with a GNOME environment, Unity like Ubuntu and of course OS X as we have said.
