    Great everything. The only bad part is it seems to have system program problems more than any other distro I use, other than that, this is an absolutely amazing Linux Distro, and great alternative to Windows, my first Linux Distro ever used actually, and it made the transition from Windows to Linux a smooth one, and I've been able to use many different distros now. I've come back to Zorin here and there and will continue to, I hope to see Zorin 10 sometime, and hopefully it blows it out of the water ;)

    A refreshing new design makes this Linux distribution a great addition to the Ubuntu line. The interface has a feel that's a perfect balance between the simplicity of Ubuntu and the sleekness of proprietary operating systems like Windows and Mac OS. The fact that Zorin OS uses the Canonical repositories for its software also make it easy to use.

    When Microsoft announced the end of life for XP, I tried out a number of different Linux distros to see if I could transition to one. Zorin-OS has worked very well for me. It is not too 'linux-y', and the support community is very friendly. Could use some kind of coherent documentation bundled with the install, but that's true for a lot of OS. Some people have trouble understanding that this is a operating system, and not an application. In order to use the .iso file after download, you need to burn the image file to a DVD. It is recommended that you burn it at the slowest speed your machine can support, to ensure a good transfer. Next, insert the DVD into your computer's drive and re-boot. You may need to load a one-time boot options menu or mess with BIOS settings to get your computer to boot to the DVD, but then you will be running Zorin-OS in LiveDVD mode.

    Installed Zorin 9 flawlessly from USB. Used this method: unetbootin . sourceforge . net Good suggestion: During installation activate Wi-Fi. After installation reboot, wait for login menu screen, go to Advanced / Recovery option. Select Enable Networking, than select Check for upgrades, then File repair, then Recover disk space. You will have a shiny installation. Language: If you installing the system where two or more languages are used, select your second language during installation in Keyboard Settings. It will install automatically Language switch and all dictionaries for the Office. We left Windows some 3 years ago. Never missed it... Suggestion for respected developers - make Dropbox a part of Zorin. RC bags are discussed here: zoringroup . com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=7730
