No, Zorin is not my dog or my Russian girlfriend, it is a Linux Operating System. And a very nice OS that will not discombobulate a Windows user because the user interface is very much like Windows.
I am running Zorin (and Windows 8) from an external SSD attached via USB3 in a virtual partition under VMware Player. That allows me to run those systems on any PC in- and outside the house. If you are interested in that setup, consult my little tutorial on my Skydrive. With a PDF enabled browser (e.g. Chrome), you can read it on-line. Else you can download it (right click on it).
Little recording problems:
The sound level of the recording is low. Turn the speakers up.
I set the recording window to cover my Windows 7 taskbar, but it cut it off.
When I trigger my Rocket dock, it does not show.
Sound comes only from the mic, not from the virtual system
But I am sure you will still get the idea.
