Ayrton Zorin strikes again with the new version of Zorin OS 6 Lite, based on Lubuntu 11.10 core and now comes with LXDE environment. This release includes a new and refined Software Center, as well as other known tools like Zorin Look Changer, Zorin Internet Browser Manager, Zorin OS Lite Extra Software and other programs from earlier versions in Zorin OS. You can download here (please, be sure you use the “lite” section, or the heavier desktop version will downloaded otherwise).
The system is using the LXDE desktop and includes GNU Paint and Simple Scan, Google and Pidgin, Abiword and Gnumeric, and Audacious, Xfburn, etc (similar choices in Lubuntu), a browser chooser and a look changer.
I must talk about another “derivative” distribution born upon Lubuntu, this called Zorin OS. Using an LXDE desktop, it has unique desktop configuration features, like Background Plus (plays animations in the background), Splash Screen Manager (self explanatory), and Look Changer (switches look to a Windows, MacOSX or Gnome like). This distro can look familiar to everyone and maintains the speed and lightness of Lubuntu.
