When it comes to operating systems, there are many options for users to pick from. Most lean towards Microsoft’s Windows 10 while others prefer something that is much more stripped down. While there is nothing wrong with Windows 10 as an operating system, there are many people that do not need all the “extra” stuff that it comes with.

There’s an alternative for Windows

People that work a lot or exclusively with browsers, for example, are the type of users that would benefit more from a Linux-based OS than a version of Windows. In that sense, there are many options, one of the being the Ubuntu-based Zorin OS.

The building blocks added afterward do not affect the OS’s sturdiness in any way. For those that have just migrated over from a Windows platform, Zorin OS is especially helpful because its design makes it very easy for Windows users to understand and get around.

The new update brings improved functionality

When a new update hits for any type of software, that might be a good time to start using it because new content makes it fresh for everyone and the learning curve a little easier. Additionally, already existing Zorin OS users should make sure that their versions are up to date and that they don’t miss on any of the improvements that come with a new patch. Why bring up updates? Because Zorin OS recently received a new update. The new patch puts it at version number 12.1, and brings some important modifications.

One of the first things that pop out after installing the 12.1 update is the fact that Zorin now features the 4.8 Linux Kernel. This, among other things, makes newer hardware compatible with Zorin. One new ability that Zorin users will be happy about is adding app icons on the Desktop and allowing users to save them in the Favorites section as well.

It’s great to see support being developed for operating systems such as Zoring as it allows a wider range of developers and users to fully access the resources they need in order to complete their tasks and projects.
