Zorin OS 6 Core and Ultimate are unleashed
The Zorin OS Team are proud to release the Zorin OS 6 Core and Ultimate, the latest version of our operating system designed for Windows users and those who are dissatisfied with the Unity and Gnome Shell offerings. At the core of Zorin OS 6 lies our new, unique desktop environment named “Zorin Desktop”. We also include our innovative Zorin Look Changer which allows users to choose between the Windows 7, XP and GNOME 2 graphical interfaces (in Core) as well as the Mac OS X, Unity and Windows 2000 interfaces in Zorin OS Ultimate. Zorin Desktop embraces all of the latest and greatest Open Source software and technologies such as Gtk3 and other software from the GNOME 3 software stack, all without affecting the familiarity, usability and customizability of the desktop and retaining the Compiz window manager. Along with the new desktop environment, Zorin OS 6 packs a ton of software updates: a newly redesigned Software Center, Linux Kernel version 3.2 and a load of other improvements and features. We also include our Zorin Web Browser Manager, Zorin Background Plus (Ultimate only) and other programs from our earlier versions. As Zorin OS 6 is based on Ubuntu 12.04 it is an LTS (Long Term Support) release, provided with 5 years of security updates.
The Zorin OS 6 Educational, Business, Multimedia and Gaming editions will be released over the next few weeks.
We hope that you will enjoy using Zorin OS 6!
