If you use Windows but want to make the switch to Linux, Zorin is definitely the distro to choose.
After trying all the other distros (Ubuntu, elementary, Mint etc.) Zorin has the best desktop interface and, since it looks like Windows, I didn't need to learn anything new to start using it. All I notice is that my computer runs faster than it ever did before, doesn't crash like Windows does, and has loads of cool apps which you can get for free for it. I can even work with all of my Office documents without having to pay M$ for it.
If you're using Windows right now (or even if you aren't), do yourself a favor and get Zorin!
Fast, easy and beautiful.
Like most other Linux distros, it gives you no option to enable FDE unless you're installing to an entire disk. Dual booting? You're out of luck, unless you want to try your luck following some random guy's instructions from years ago, involving about 817 command lines.
People actually argue about which third-party utility to use to create the bootable USB flash drive. Zorin recommends balenaEtcher, but lots of people report issues with it. By contrast, when you're preparing to install Windows, Microsoft provides their own utility for this purpose.
Oh, such a great UX, and we haven't even installed yet!
Expect your resolution to be locked at a maximum of 1024x768, even if you install the NVIDIA drivers. Oh wait, there may be an obscure workaround mentioned somewhere on the internet...
Sound? You want SOUND to work? LOL, OK, we'll give you random speaker pops, how's that? Does that work for you?
Support? LOL, thanks for the money for Pro, but if you've read the above, you've gotten all the support you'll get. That's literally true.
It is very convenient to use and has a simple and beautiful user interface.
IT JUST WORKS !! Fast and like windows , but for free and legal
Not everything works perfectly but I just love the out-of-the box user experience.
You can double click an exe when you need it and the UI is just beatiful and clean with nice Wallpapers pre installed.
The best OS for new users switching from Windows in my opinion, if you like how it looks like.
Simple, beautiful, elegant, has a lot of compatibility and it's free and open source
