Zorin OS 6: The ultimate Linux distro for Windows users?

Filed under
Linux

Not that I have mad love for Windows, mind you, it's just what I'm used to.

Zorin OS 6 is an Ubuntu-based OS that comes closer to re-creating the Windows experience than any other Linux distro I've tried.

For you Linux neophytes out there, Ubuntu is one of most popular and heavily developed versions of Linux. Zorin OS uses Ubuntu as its core, but coats it with a decidedly Windows-like interface.
