    And here's a review of Zorin OS 9 64-bit edition, an Ubuntu-based distribution with the Gnome desktop, tested in a quad-boot setup on a laptop with Intel graphics and SSD, including look & feel, themes, network connectivity - Wireless (2.4GHz and 5GHz), Samba sharing and printing, multimedia playback - Flash and MP3, partitioning & slideshow, updates, software management, backups, applications, system settings, system resources, stability, suspend & resume, small issues and problems, and more. Have fun.

    I've been playing with version 6.4 for about a year and have yet to experience a crash. I tried version 7 briefly but went back to 6.4 which, for whatever reason, runs smoother and is more responsive on my machine. You are absolutely correct that Zorin is a great transition distro for those looking to migrate away from Windows.
    Good review and I'll probably download the ISO, install, and try it out.
    Thanks for the review.
