Zorin OS, the computer operating system from Ireland, released version 16 at Tuesday, August 17th, 2021. Currently available as Pro and Core, with Lite and Education Editions to come, it is the successor to the last year version 15.3. This GNU/Linux system is suitable for most computer users, organizations, schools and offices. Below you will find the download links, mirrors, a torrent, checksums, and how to proceed further to the installation. Finally, we congratulate Zorin OS official for nearly 3 million downloads since two years ago and it's our time to celebrate. Now let's download Zorin OS!



Purchase Zorin Laptop

Want Zorin OS? You can simply purchase a laptop or desktop with Zorin OS preinstalled. Fortunately, these computers are already available (just like Windows and MacOS boxes). Currently, everyone can order from two shops, namely LaptopWithLinux and StarLabs, shipping from Netherland and United Kingdom respectively. They already ship computers with Zorin OS 16!

Download Pro Edition

We respect the decision of Zorin GNU/Linux to make one edition a paid product. You can purchase Pro Edition (Ultimate) for $39. Alternatively, you can just order a laptop with Pro Edition preinstalled from store mentioned above. We wish you success, Zorin OS.
