Among hundreds of Linux distributions there are few who dare to make Linux looks like Windows, and among those is Zorin OS. But its look is not the only feature, it comes with the cutting-edge tools, always respects privacy, and improved security to name a few.

Back in June, Zorin OS 15 was released with a lot of new features and improvements.

So in this article, we’ll take a look at Zorin OS 15 features and what it has improved since its previous release.

Zorin Connect syncs your phone with your computer and shows all your important calls, messages, notifications. Not only that, it also allows you to remotely control your Zorin computer from android phone.

As I mentioned in the article above, Zorin takes care of your privacy and security, so all data transferred between your phone and PC is RSA encrypted end-to-end and only going through your wifi. No data is being sent to the cloud.

New Look

Zorin OS has always been at the center for its look and design. The new release also comes with a new look & animations. There is an app ‘Zorin Appearance’ to control look & feel of the operating system.

One of the best Zorin OS 15 features is that it can adapt as you like. It’ll change to light mode in day and dark mode during night making it much more useful and easy on your eyes.

Zorin OS 15 is also able to change the system background automatically every hour.

Also, you will no longer need to install third-party apps for controlling blue light your screen emitting during night. There is a built-in app for that.

All these new features will make you more relaxed especially when you work for hours & hours.

Touch Screen Support


If you are using Zorin OS on a laptop or a tablet, it will always work. Just switch the layout from Zorin Appearance app and it’ll adapt to your tablet or other touchscreen device and enable extra features to better control it.

Flatpak support

Flatpak apps are the apps that can be installed on different types of Linux distributions and provide the same user experience. We have discussed flatpak in an article here. So if you want to know more about it, you can read the article.

The new Zorin OS now has built-in support for flatpak. So you can install any flatpak on Zorin without having to install any external packages.

After adding Flatpak repository, flatpak apps can be installed right from the software installer which is already snaps supported. For more information on Snaps, please read this.

Besides the above mentioned features, Zorin OS 15 has also redesigned some apps, added do not disturb mode, a To-do app, Firefox as the default web browser, Color emoji support, NVIDIA drivers available from the live ISO etc.
