Distrohoppers are renown for constantly changing Linux distributions over and over again. But, sooner or later, some distrohoppers stop hopping and settle down with one Linux distribution. A guest columnist at DarkDuck shares his experiences with Zorin OS and how it got him to stop switching Linux distributions.
According to DarkDuck:
My goal was to try to find the system that most resembled the look and feel of the Windows systems I was used to because of familiarity and ease of use.
I used Zorin 7 till Zorin 8 came out and now I'm onto Zorin 9 my first LTS Zorin distro...I have seen how the Linux community has grown up over the years with stable distros that have all the features I could desire but Zorin has a style that matches my expectations of how a distro should work.More at DarkDuck
Part of me is always sad to see another distrohopper settle down and stop hopping. But it's somewhat inevitable once a person has enough Linux experience under their belt. At some point most of us just want to pick our favorite distribution and use it without constantly shifting to a new one.
Zorin OS is certainly a fine choice, particularly for someone who likes a Windows-esque experience. If you aren't familiar with it then you might want to drop by the Zorin OS site. You can also take a tour of Zorin OS, view a gallery of screenshots, download Zorin OS, or read the FAQ.
Here's a review of Zorin OS 9 on YouTube:
