Has anyone used this? Apparently it's up there with Mint.

The pro version costs some money, but dirt cheap compared to windows, and honestly, if paying for Linux get me an OS with more support, more features, GUIs, less cli, more compatibility, more development, ease of use, etc. etc.

Then I would gladly pay to eventually get something of a true windows replacement/competitor.

Ya I'm thinking of buying pro once the new version comes out in a few months.................since it has the "windows type" gui.................among other features installed and ready to go. Probably be great for people who just check email and surf the net.
"With an Ubuntu and Linux foundation, Zorin OS is built on the same Open Source........ "

You guys keep acting as if Zorin OS hasn't been launched at least a decade ago. It's not a new distro by any means. It's older than Lubuntu and almost as old as Ubuntu itself.

Well Zorin isn't really a distro many talk about and so many are better but the fact it looks and acts like WiN is a plus. I have a USB 64GB with a lot of OS's to test out on the "Live USB" so I decided to try Zorin

Hi,
lol what are you reading 10-11 Pro with office 2019 or 2021 was a third of that :laugh:

You can get it for $10 off the keysites.
Good you can read godeal24 keys do work.

Well Zorin isn't really a distro many talk about and so many are better but the fact it looks and acts like WiN is a plus. I have a USB 64GB with a lot of OS's to test out on the "Live USB" so I decided to try Zorin
Zorin at one time was the only gaming sort of supported linux distro
Now steam is a lot better with linux but linux no matter which distro pretty much sux.

I was comparing apples to apples. Legit price off website.

Hi,
Legit ?

So you think @W1zzard allows illegal software sells on his website ?
Seems like that's what you're saying about the link I posted to techpowerup godeal24 advertisement I posted instead you say "apples to apples" newegg overpriced win-10 pro as legit.

I'm sure W1zzard would love for a clarification of your view maybe he'll chime in and assure you they are indeed legit as well just down right crazy low priced maybe they should sell zorin pro activation codes too for pennies on the dollar :laugh:

Hi,

I looked back at zorin pro or considered it again when I thought it was 20.us
But then saw it was 40.us now and well it's still funny 10-11 pro with office is less than that :kookoo:

Most Unix-like systems have forums where you can get support if you can't solve a problem yourself. Often you will be helped better here than Windows customer service will help you with Windows problems. The latter are based in India and have been professionally trained in avoiding customer problems. What I mean is that their training ensures that they often won't help you.

I wouldn't recommend Zorin myself, but rather the following systems:
Nobara Project, Void Linux, Mint, EndeavourOS, MX Linux, NetBSD, Devuan, FreeBSD and Clear Linux

It's legit price, not "overpriced". Just because stolen and shady keys are cheap and everyone pirates Windows, that still doesn't make retail price illegitimate.

Has anyone used this? Apparently it's up there with Mint.

The pro version costs some money, but dirt cheap compared to windows, and honestly, if paying for Linux get me an OS with more support, more features, GUIs, less cli, more compatibility, more development, ease of use, etc. etc.

Then I would gladly pay to eventually get something of a true windows replacement/competitor.

I have browsed the official website for awhile now, still have yet to see mention of a single name of a CEO, etc. Even the 'About' page is very vague, though it does say Dublin, Ireland. So, it's probably legit good OS, but I struggle to trust companies... so that personable side of it would be a better touch. I prefer to just use the latest Ubuntu, since I know it is tried and tested true.

Benchmark Scores Rimworld 4K ready!
I have browsed the official website for awhile now, still have yet to see mention of a single name of a CEO, etc. Even the 'About' page is very vague, though it does say Dublin, Ireland. So, it's probably legit good OS, but I struggle to trust companies... so that personable side of it would be a better touch. I prefer to just use the latest Ubuntu, since I know it is tried and tested true.

Dublin, Ireland, the home to many dubious companies.

Hi,
Legit ?

So you think @W1zzard allows illegal software sells on his website ?
Seems like that's what you're saying about the link I posted to techpowerup godeal24 advertisement I posted instead you say "apples to apples" newegg overpriced win-10 pro as legit.

I'm sure W1zzard would love for a clarification of your view maybe he'll chime in and assure you they are indeed legit as well just down right crazy low priced maybe they should sell zorin pro activation codes too for pennies on the dollar :laugh:
But are the retail keys or OEM key or VLK?

But are the retail keys or OEM key or VLK?
Hi,
They have all types
Closest to "retail" I've ran across is a win-11 pro "5 activations allowed key" which I use the same key on now 3 installs z490/ x299/ x99 it was a whopping 4.us a pop so 20.us total :laugh:
OEM's vary in price refer to the prior link and review the deals they offer.
Then ask yourself why you'd want to buy the same item for vastly more from amazon/ newegg/.. or even from ms directly ?

Is that from the links that TPU puts up? Use a credit card or a gift credit card for that purchase??
