Overall Opinion: Zorin is a great easy to use system, unfortunately it locks up on my computer a bit too often and nothing works except the power button. Sadly I have to find an alternative. Its probably my pc not the software.

Pros: -

Zorin Os is a ripoff

Overall Opinion: I purchased Zorin OS, or at least I think I did; it had been about a year ago. Sloppy UI was the problem. I am not sure if I bought or not. I ran out of patience playing the guessing game that usually results from sloppy quality UI. For me, this purchase was a complete waste of my money because of the sloppy UI problem. When oh when, will the coders wise up and realize that their expertise lies in coding and not in relating to other people. They need to let Marketing make hand drawn copies of the best language and best layout. Then they need to hand carry these hard copies to the coders. As long as the coders insist upon doing the part of the UI that we, the public see, it will forever be a mess. This is a problem not only with Zorin OS, but with all the UI that the coders insist upon designing. The problem is not a lack of "Tech Saviness" on the part of the end user, but rather our not being good at guessing games.

Pros: There was nothing to like. Either I did not buy it or could not figure out how to access it, because of sloppy UI.

Cons: Sloppy UI!! I found the purchase experience to be a guessing game, and I ran out of time and patience playing the guessing game.

Doug Lescoe is using Zorin OS a couple of times per year since at least a year or more.
