Many Linux-oriented websites, manuals, documents and courses, are too technical to be of any interest for novice users and that scares off a potentially large group of new people to take the step to Linux. And that is a pity because Linux is really great and can even be a user-friendly platform. To help others to use Linux productively without making things too complicated and technical, in the past couple of years I worked on both a Linux Mint and Zorin OS tutorial series for beginners, as part of my website www.reallinuxuser.com. These tutorial series tried in an easy and approachable way to bring Linux to beginning users, non-technical people that are interested in just using Linux to support them in their productivity, and to those who think about switching from macOS or windows to Linux.
Recently, I started thinking that my relatively disconnected Linux Mint and Zorin OS articles have the potential, when presented in a nicer and more structured form, to be of greater value to my readers from a learning perspective. I have therefore decided to convert these individual tutorials into a number of well-structured online courses. And this Zorin OS course is the first product of that goal.
As a writer and researcher of Linux related topics, I found that there are a several accessible and friendly Linux distributions that can appeal to former macOS users as well as Windows users. One of these distributions is Zorin OS. I really lost my heart to this distribution because it looks great, can be set up via simple adjustments to appeal both Windows and macOS users, offers a lot of robust functionality that is already available out-of-the-box, and the many user-friendly functionalities and integrations make this distribution in my opinion rise above others. I am very enthusiastic about Zorin OS so I want to share my enthusiasm with others. That is why I have decided to start creating this beginner-friendly course about Zorin OS.
