    Not sure if one is any better than the other, it'll depend entirely on what you want out of your OS. Zorin has a Windows-like desktop option as well as as a more GNOME3 type of layout. PlayOnLinux is preinstalled for running Windows-compatible software. It's basically supposed to be a setup that eases people used to Windows into using a Linux OS.

    I've used older versions of Zorin before, and it was alright as a general purpose OS. But then, so is Mint. And Ubuntu. And Debian. And Solus, Fedora, Arch, Bodhi...

    You could always try each in a VM before you think about hopping distros.

    I loved Zorin when I tried it out.
    But, for some reason or another, I can only get steam, to run properly under MINT 17.3 ( Mint 18 doesnt like steam on my TuxBox for some reason )
