Zorin OS is an operating system designed to make the "Gateway to Linux". This is because it has a familiar Windows interface, complete with panel customizations, start menu, and even a Look Changer to change the Windows style.
Everything works out of the box in Zorin! All the applications you will ever need is available.
Zorin OS is much faster than Windows and supports more devices without you even having to install drivers!
If Zorin will not run great on your vintage PC, the Lite edition may bring that box back to life.
