Zorin OS 8 is here

Zorin OS 8

The team Zorin OS released a few days ago version 8 of Zorin OS Core and Zorin OS Ultimate.

According to the official announcement, Zorin OS 8 includes a large number of changes implemented since the previous version, such as a simpler and more visually pleasing music player, Emphaty as an instant messaging client and the inclusion of Zorin Theme Manager, a tool that allows you to change the subject with great ease.

Zorin OS 8 is based on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander.

One of the most interesting things about Zorin OS is the tools developed specifically for the distribution, such as Zorin Look Changer o Zorin Web Browser Manager. The first allows you to change the appearance of Zorin OS in a really easy way and the second helps new users to install their preferred web browser with a simple click.

In the aesthetic section Zorin Os looks really good. Its default themes, one light and one dark, try to emulate the appearance of Windows. This is important considering that the distribution is aimed at those users who have decided migrate from Windows to Linux. Another section that is quite reminiscent of Microsoft's operating system is the applications menu.

Zorin OS 8 Core can be downloaded from the following links:

In order to install the distribution (GNOME) it is necessary to have at least 3 GB of free space on the hard disk, 376 MB of RAM and a graphics card with a minimum resolution of 640 × 480 pixels.

      Pedro asked if you have found any solution

    Pablo, I did not find the solution and I don't know whether to download it again and tax at a minimum, but the failure.

      Are you installing in dual-boot? What information does the error give?

      1.    Pedro said

        Ricardo says that the installer has failed, he doesn't say anything else.

        Hi Ricardo, in my case I am installing in Dual Boot (Win 7). Try other distros without any problem, the live cd runs ok. Probe from the live cd, with the desktop icon. Also from 0, with the installer. When reaching the end the error appears. Zorin OS 6 installs it without problems. My hard Intel Atom 525 (1.8 Mhz), and 2GB Memory. I have an ext4 partition, and a 2GB swap. Greetings

      If you change the language, it's easy, I'm a novice and I already have it in Spanish and with all the effects of compiz, just looking on youtube.

    Zorin OS 8 is the best operating system in the world. I install it without any problem, and changing the language is not complicated, maybe a little time, depending on the internet, it is very good.
