I’ve always liked Zorin Linux, but in the end it is just another archaic Enterprise Linux Distro, wid the Linux ‘Nanny controlling what the user can ‘n cannot do. Annoying “Authenticate” popups and pestering Pesky Passwords are constantly slowing the user’s work flow…on their *OWN* home computer!!! That’s not “privacy-respecting,” that’s some Linux ‘Nanny looking over your shoulder whilst treating you like some kind of kindergarten student.

“secure”?!? Linux is the least secure OS around. What do the Linux OS developers not understand about the meaning of OPEN SOURCE?!? See the *Linux Security Issues* for more info.

Give the Desktop or Laptop user some control options over their *OWN* computers. Chrome OS, a Linux newcomer, has kicked open source Linuxes’ arses on security, and Worldwide users. They require one password during login, but no other pestering passwords or annoying Linux ‘Nanny “Authenticate” popups during the remainder of the computer session.

Windows OSes are the most secure OSes around, especially Windows 11. Windows OSes have always given me the option of having a required password for logging in, but no other password requirements during the computer session. However, I haven’t used a password on any of my Windows computers since my first computer, a Dell in 1992.

Desktop/Laptop home users want options and not some Linux ‘Nanny looking over their shoulder ‘n shouting demands at them.

Again, I like Zorin 16.2, which is the only reason I’m doing this review on their Distro. They can do better, if they ever get past their archaic Enterprise Linux brainwashing. Want to attract Windows users? Then dump the Linux ‘Nanny archaic mentality ‘n offer the home users some control options over their own computers, e.g., like Porteus 5.0, Fedora 36 Cinnamon SPIN, SparkyLinux, and Nobara Linux 36.

Zorin OS 16.2

Three choices, and I went wid the 2.86GB Zorin-OS-16.2-Core-64-bit.iso Core choice. Used balenaEtcher to create the ‘Live‘ bootable USB.

Immediately knew it was a Distro for ‘Password Dependent‘ OS users when they didn’t offer an option to create a root user.

Good looking OS ‘n desktop after installation, but controlled by the infamous Linux ‘Nanny.

Zorin OS

The alternative to Windows and macOS designed to make your computer faster, more powerful, secure, and privacy-respecting.

Not even close to my Windows 11 Pro OSes, on my main 3 Computers, OSes which I can purchase for a lot less than $39.


Never had any problems activating an OEM Key from VIP-URcdkey or KINGUIN or URcdkey.

Windows 11 Pro OEM CD-KEY @ $23.61 w/ code Halloween.

Machine too old for Windows 11? Try Windows 10 Pro OEM CD-KEY @ $16.49 w/ code Halloween.

Buy that one for just $16.49, and upgrade to Win11 PRO if your computer is compatible.

Here’s another tip, if you are interested, get MS Office2019 Professional Plus CD Key Global @ $52.17 w/ code Halloween.

I don’t really need such a powerful Professional Office Suite, so LibreOffice is my primary suite.


I use Linux as a secondary or ‘Companion‘ or Special *PURPOSE* OS to my Win11 Pro OSes ‘n computers.

Zorin OS 16.2 is a great little Linux OS for those not minding a nagging Linux ‘Nanny. The developers can do better tho, IMHO.

Will add this post to the Windows 11 page…

LINUX IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES – you never know what you’re gonna get!
