Can I just say how AMAZED I am with the Zorin 9 Ultimate release !!!
I think that this time the devs have surpassed themselves and taken the extra step.

The ultimate release is packed with all kinds of apps and games that you don't normally get in other distros like VB, Skype etc.
The design and themes are great. The icons are modern, the window buttons are fantastic and the different Desktops (look changer) are EXCELLENT. Especially the Mac OSX look using Docky and launchpad!
The live/moving backgrounds (background plus) make the desktop seem like it is from another planet !
There is also a pre-determined Zorin-OS start page for firefox which is nothing you have ever seen before.
It's fast, stable and everything worked out of the box including the desktop effects (cube etc). I tried it on two laptops (one with intel HD3000 and one with ATI5400) and it worked without any flaw even from the live USB using the opensource drivers!

I attach some pics with the blue theme for you to get an idea (you can't see it but the background is moving like a wave in my below pics :mrgreen: ).
My personal opinion: it's really worth buying the ultimate version.
