First ... This is Zorin Lite not Zorin Core so why does it ahs so many freaking software? I don't want Libre Office, I don't want Gimp, I don't games games or Wine or zillion software blootware stufff.... If I wanted all that c*** I would have installed Zorin Core...

Second .. XFCE is freaking horrible.. annoying thing... THe minute I saw I couldn't put the pannel to the Top like I always do I was like .. creepy perverted XFCE c***... the screenschot utility is freaking annoying and absurd... It asks me if I want to save it and where and bla bla bla... it should be like zorin 9 lite where i just take a screenshot and it goes straight to the folder with the date and number ...

I tell you this.. Zorin 9 lite LXDE was freaking perfect... You don't change a thing that its perfect. Had the right software , the right size .. was lite and not heavy like this creepy XFCE is .. freaking heavy and full of software c***... WHY DO YOU CHANGE A THING THAT WAS PERFECT??? You know w3hat will happenn ?? The people who installed zorin 9 lite will not install this zorin 12 which isnt lite and will search for a Linux Distribution lite with LXDE and REALLY Lite....
I think Zorin has 2 core versions .. this one named zorin 12 lite but it is a core heavy version and the other zorin 12 core....

You ruined a fantastic version of Zorin with this XFCE creepy perverted stufff... Go back to LXDE .. If people want a core version they have already one Core Version... of Zorin 12...

I won't use this creepy version XFCE... I wish and desire the LXDE version... Was perfection !|!! 5 stars...and a really LITE version!!


I have to disagree with your outpouring of hate of XFCE - the problem with Lubuntu on which previous versions of Zorin were based had a limited timescale, with LTS maxing out at 3 years tops.

XFCE can be made to look just as good as LXDE - I like both LXDE and XFCE but Lubuntu is not the way forward - XFCE can become a 'roll-over' DE if applied as SolydX community have done - and don't forget Jacque Raymer's Makulu Flash running XFCE and Compiz! Don't forget users of older kit will need XFCE with a version of Office that will run with Accessibility Software - only LibreOffice meets that criteria. Zorin made a great choice of moving to XFCE for sustainability reasons - remember Zorin comprised just the Zorin brothers and 2 full-time devs.

Let's agree to disagree! ;) :D

I agree, the move to Xfce makes "perfect" sense. I couldn't even tell the difference at first. Except that this is the fastest Zorin I have had on this computer. Fastest to boot, open email. etc. Very smooth. No problems with updates so far. All I can say is, everyone's computer is different. It may be that yours just doesn't "like" this edition of Zorin. In my case, every other edition of Zorin had problems on my computer. And it's possible this one may also, but it hasn't happened yet. I am really looking forward to the official release. I agree that Zorin 9 was a fantastic distro, but of course time moves on, we can't expect the Zorin team to stay with 9 forever! I suggest you give it a chance, you may surprise yourself.

Just a status report. Zorin Lite continues to work flawlessly for me. It is a joy to use.

Bug Report!
Zorin OS 12 Lite Beta 64 bit

The weather applet in the xfce panel does not work, have tried several different locations around the world, Melbourne Australia, Paris France, Paris Canada for example.
I suspect that this is an xfce issue as it stopped working on my Linux Mint 18 xfce (64bit) install on another machine that it was previously working on but thought I would make mention of it here also.

Hi, I had issues with Weather in Ultimate - I now use gnome shell extension with openweathermap - it would appear that with most weather apps these days you have to register your email for a free geolocation code in order to access the data. ;) :D

Weather in Zorin 12 Lite works for me and today I downloaded and installed Zorin OS 12.1 Ultimate (64bit) into a VM and it is also working. Agree about registering for many to work, think I did this for the Gnome Extension in 12 Ultimate some time ago.

I installed it from the software center. It's the one called simply "weather."

The latest update to Zorin Lite is stalling for some reason. I shut down and restarted, and tried it again, but still it stalls about halfway through. The good news is that is the only real issue I've had with this beta. Only to be expected, and better to get it sorted out now rather than later.
