Zorin OS Releases a "Lite" Version

Filed under
Linux

If your computer has put on a few pounds and needs to fit into a sleek new case, Zorin OS developers have released their "great taste, less filling" edition. Actually, Zorin OS 5 "Lite" is a more conservative version of their desktop system that's designed for older computers.

Zorin OS Lite is based on Lubuntu and features the LXDE desktop. Wine, VLC, and some games were removed and many other applications were switched for lighter alternatives in order to fit on a single CD and increase performance. Since it was designed with older computers in mind, it's only available in the 32-bit variety.
