Zorin OS 15 Released

Jun 11, 2019

The new release is based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

Artyom Zorin, Chief Executive Officer of Zorin OS has announced the release of Zorin OS 15, the latest version of the Linux-based distribution.

Zorin OS 15 is based on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS with the Hardware Enablement (HWE) stack. The LTS base enables Zorin OS developers to focus on making incremental improvements to the distro without having to chase the always moving target, since new versions of Ubuntu are released every 6 months.

According to a Zorin blog, speed has been a top focus in Zorin OS 15, so the desktop runs dramatically smoother on a wide range of hardware, old and new. “With the introduction of Gnome Shell 3.30 and the Linux kernel 4.18, performance optimizations have been made at every level of the operating system,” said the blog post.

Zorin OS also packs Nvidia drivers in the ISO, so users don’t need Internet in order to install such drivers.

Zorin OS includes the adaptive desktop, which changes the background to adapt to the brightness of the environment. The new Zorin Auto Theme feature automatically switches the desktop theme into Dark mode at sunset and back to light mode after sunrise.

Zorin is targeted at Windows and macOS users who want to switch to Desktop Linux.
