Zorin OS 16 Beta is an Ubuntu-based Linux distribution designed especially for newcomers to Linux. It has a Windows-like graphical user interface and many programs similar to those found in Windows. Zorin OS also comes with an application that lets users run many Windows programs. The distribution’s ultimate goal is to provide a Linux alternative to Windows and let Windows users enjoy all the features of Linux without complications.
The Zorin OS 16 Beta project has released a development snapshot of its desktop distribution. Zorin OS 16 Beta Download .iso includes a new desktop look, performance improvements, and a wide range of software made available through Flatpak and Snap. “You’ll notice that even more apps are available to install from the Software store in Zorin OS 16 than ever before. This is thanks to the addition of the Flathub repository to Zorin OS out of the box. Flathub is the de-facto standard repository from where to get apps using the Flatpak package format. It has flourished into a huge ecosystem of apps and games from many independent developers, as well as software directly from big names like Spotify, Zoom, and Mojang. Now Zorin OS comes pre-loaded with the app catalogs of Flathub, the Snap store, and the Ubuntu and Zorin OS APT repositories, as well as the capability to install .deb and AppImage packages and Windows apps (optionally using WINE). Thanks to this, Zorin OS 16 has the largest library of apps available out-of-the-box of any Open Source desktop ever.” Further information can be found in the project’s release announcement.
