    Pop OS and Zorin OS are two next-gen Linux distros that ship with advanced features. They are the next iteration in the evolution of desktop Linux. In this video, I will compare then side by side with respect to performance, speed, looks, stability, and features and we'll decide which among the two is the best. Which one is more suitable for You.

    As an eternal distro hopper, I try out a lot of Linux distros, and every now and then, there comes a Linux distro which brings a lot of new things to the table. But the success of such unique distros is not always guaranteed. Mainly because the Linux world is filled with exceptional distros and the competition is cutthroat.

    Zorin and POP OS are two distros that brought something new to the table and were smash hits with downright stunning features. Used by hundreds of thousands of people, they are the next iteration in the evolution of desktop Linux.

    Two breathtaking distros with stunning looks, superior workflows, and state of the art tech. Let's take a closer look and see how they compare against each other in terms of speed, performance, stability, ease of use and tech support. Which one of these two is the best?
