Revive your old PC. Help the environment.

We've streamlined Zorin OS to work on computers as old as 15 years. Keep using your PC for longer to save money on upgrades and reduce e-waste to help the environment.

Because of the lower hardware requirements [of Zorin OS] alone, we're expecting to extend the life of the city's PCs by 30-40%
