Zorin OS 16.02 Now Available

Oct 31, 2022

Zorin OS 16.2 has been officially released just seven months after the first point release of the user-friendly Linux operating system.

Zorin OS is one of the more user-friendly (and beautiful) Linux distributions on the market. Only seven months after unleashing the first point release for the sixteenth iteration, a new point release is available that includes a really important feature for those migrating from Windows.

With Zorin OS 16.2, users will now find a new Windows App Support menu in the System Tools section of the desktop menu. This new feature makes it considerably easier for users to install Windows applications with just a few clicks.

The new Windows App Support feature also makes it easier for the distribution to detect Windows installer files for many popular applications and will suggest alternatives.

Other features include improved compatibility with Microsoft Office documents (by including alternatives to proprietary fonts), a much better Zorin Connect experience (for example, you can now view the status of your laptop battery on your phone), and GDevelop was added to the Zorin OS Education spin.

LibreOffice 7.4 is installed by default, a new maximize effect and refined physics for Jelly Mode has been added, as well, new hardware compatibility has been added.

You can download Zorin OS 16.2 from the official site and find out more from the official Zorin blog.
