This could be a great OS that could run on an older PC or Laptop and its free

Also if you are a fan of linux, and like Dualbooting or Virtualization

Looks really good...I have Ubuntu on one of my PC's, but I could never get to like it. Zorin looks very promising because you can change the look (I love XP).

Do you dual boot, Ubuntu on your PC or use Virtual Box ?

Maybe now you and alot of other users can give Zorin a spin as it has more in common with Windows :)

Neither, I have a dedicated PC for Ubuntu, there are 7 PC's in my house...Two Vista laptops, An XP Netbook, 2 64 bit Desktop PC's, a 32 bit Desktop, an ipaq portable, and a Ubuntu desktop.

Do you know what the minimum specifications (eg: CPU/Ram) are for running Zorin?

At least 5GB of free space, a blank DVD or 2GB USB drive, a DVD drive or USB port

Approx. 1.14 gig download

Thanks for looking, But I already knew those specs, It's the CPU and Ram specs I can't find?
I'm thinking of putting it on my Ubuntu PC, which is an old Athlon 2.2 with a gig of ram.

Contact them to enquire at:

or

os@zoringroup.com

I'm sure they would be most pleased to help especially if it can get as wide a coverage as Ubuntu
