Zorin. my new distro!

Hi all,

I just wanted to share my story about my Linux journey.

I started to use Linux during my college. I didnt switched completely from Windows, so it was just casual experiment.
I ditched Windows permanently 3-4 y ago. First distro was Ubuntu ofc, but I didnt like it. Than I found Manjaro ( Arch based) ,first love,lol. From than I used it constantly. Last year ( Corona time) I started my distro hopping. I tried many distros ( Fedora, Solus, Mint, Ubuntu, Elementary os, Endeavour os, Arcolinux, OpenSuse, different WM (i3, bspwm, awesome), Manjaro, Zorin 16 beta and others).
But I was somehow curious about new Zorin 16 release, and I eagerly awaited it.

Firstly I installed core version, to check if everything is fine, had some issues with Steam and games, but with help from lovely people on this forum, I sorted it.
Than I bought Pro version. I wanted to support Zorin project, because I like to support great stuff, small projects where hard work is visible. And from my part, that’s at least a little I can do right now. Thank you Zorin from taking care for my health, that was at least 30 less beers for me :crazy_face: and really well spent 40 eur.

Looking from my perspective ( mostly Arch user), this distro is sleak. Easy to install, no issues during partitioning, easy guided installer and fast. hassle free installation

Modern interface, well designed theme, fast and smooth to operate.
Here I don't need to update every day, making a battle with testing branch, experimenting, I even don't need to use terminal.

It just works. It is stable. It is fast. It is modern, polished os. Do I need something else ? no

I feel like i'm home.

Thank you Zorin team, for your hard work, for this awesome distro. :heart: :heart_eyes:


Thank you for your support and kind words! We're glad to hear you're enjoying Zorin OS!


Awww, I am glad to hear after checking out several distro's, you've found your home. During a ruthless pandemic that shows no end, its good to have a place you can call home, filled with awesome people you can call family.

I too tried several distro's, but not as many as you, and I too know what it feels like being part of the Zorin family. The strange thing is, even when I jumped distro's, I still find myself coming back, even months later.

I care about what the Zorin team are doing, and it makes me feel good that they produced a quality OS in the end. I was scared there for awhile about OS 16 might not being good. But I was happy to be wrong when reports started coming in on the BETA, that OS 16 was a cut above the rest.

I hope you enjoy your stay here, were glad to have you. And were not the only ones lovely here, so are you. lol :heart_eyes_cat:


hehe, thanks :slight_smile:
