Zorin OS 7 - The sum of all parts is average

Filed under
Linux

We have gathered today to review Zorin OS 7, the latest edition of an Ubuntu-based distribution that prides itself at being friendly and newb-loving, which means Windows people.

The test box is a T61 laptop, not a virtual machine, so don't ever raise that topic again, with Intel graphics and two SSD, and we will be installing Zorin alongside the other resident players, three of them, making Zorin the fourth. Do follow me.

Zorin comes with a pretty fancy default look. A lot of suicidal blue, which is nice, plus some sharp white to spice it all. The system features a sharper, more angular look this time, in a sort of a not so silent nod to the Windows Modern Interface, or whatever comes on top of Faildows 8 and its current beta upgrade.

Most of these settings are exposed in plain text files under the /etc directory. Here I describe some of the most common settings you’ll use on your desktop Linux system. A lot of settings can be found in the Settings program, and the available options will vary by Linux distribution. Usually, you can change the background, tweak sound volume, connect to printers, set up displays, and more. While I won't talk about all of the settings here, you can certainly explore what's in there. Read more
