    I tried Zorin OS some time back, sorry I didn't end up digging it. By now every Linux distro should work with any with Dell WiFi "out of the box" or an easily discovered setting after a full install. Hell some distros work with dell WiFi as a live USB, I recall Joli OS works with dell WiFi even from a live CD with no effort at all if there's no Ethernet connection. Wile I'm a Linux neophyte, I'm not a computer neophyte in general, but 20 years post stroke I no longer have the patience with anything that's touted as great when it's not. In the event my dell mini 9 could support Windows 7 pro or windows 8.1 I would hesitate purchasing one them. Sorry if I stepped on the toes of Tux, but Linux has a ways to go when it comes to the end home computer user consumer market.

    I have used multiple versions of Zorin over the years since Zorin 6 Ultimate. Even though I test out other distros... I nothing has tempted me away from Zorin. Currently using Zorin 7 Ultimate on my PC and Zorin 8 Lite on my netbook. The Zorin team has vastly refined and improved the look of Zorin over the years. Zorin 9 continues that 'steam' and its good.. very good. Well done.

    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

    I think you have a winner here. While the install was long, it was not difficult. The features are terrific and I love how you can change the look. I opted for the Windows 7 look. Excellent job! After getting the updates downloaded and installed, I played with it. At first, I thought it seemed just a little slow, but the more I used it, the better it got. This system can compete with Windows 7 and should please many users.

    It's very similar to Win7

    If any flavour of linux can take away microsoft diehards, this is it! Fast, easy to use, great for XP users. Would be great to have better instructions for more complicated apps!
