Zorin 15 Beta is now out!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The Zorin 15 Beta is now out. This is a great leap forward for GNU/Linux in general. To save me reinventing the wheel (I already have my 1+ 3T synced with the Beta with Zorin Connect, available in the android store), all the blurb here - and yes I will be creating an unofficial manual for the latest release of Zorin, hopefully in time for Easter! Yay!

I can use my phone as a slideshow remote to scroll Firefox - whoop de doo! Lost an interactive controller? Not needed in Zorin 15! :D

 

And now LibreOffice 6.2.1.2 with an up-to-date interface to beat the opposition further! :D

I am so unbelievably happy by this post. I cannot express my joy and general happiness by being informed that a beta version of an OS that I don't use has been released. I am sure many other Sheffield Forum members will also be unable to contain their amazement at this news.

Remember sharing is caring - perhaps a long-time user of Windows may convince you otherwise!

Hi Kidorry,

 

The core version will always be free (there is a request to make a donation but you can skip that). Somebody posted that it even got a mention on Forbes:

The beta is free of course but it is advisable not to install to a working pc you are dependent on - trying it in live mode however will not upset your machine.

Thank you for that.

I think I will wait until the final version is released, but it was interesting to read your link.
