    Zorin 9 lasts 3 years longer then 11 ? Why, why and why. 11 is newer and should last longer ?

    Zorin is OK but it has some serious failings as a XP/Win7 substitute. RDP support inbound, as with other Linux distributions, is feeble at best. Adding items to the launcher is clunky. There are other problems; these are just two that have bugged me in particular.

      true that…Zorin OS shares some weak points as other Linux distributions as of now and there’s too little an end user can do about it…the most important thing right now is the potential Zorin OS has and as long as it remains, it will continue to thrive and edge even closer to Windows in terms of the functionality provided..

    Thanks very much Zorin, you just broken my Windows 10 Partition. Rubbish!

    The installation procedure sounds just like Mint. What is the difference between Mint 17.3 and this. I am currently using mint 17.3. Also, some devices are not recognized by mint even with Wine. Such as an ATT cell phone modem (air Card) with the drivers stored within the device. I need to run it in window then. will Zorin support it.

    • Jesse says:

      actually, there’s a lot of difference between Zorin and Linux Mint; many of which i mentioned in the article. Yes it should work…the Linux kernel includes drivers for it…however, if it doesn’t work, try updating your kernel to a later version and try again..remember you’ll have to do some manual configurations under the network settings..
