Zorin OS Ultimate vs Zorin OS Free

Wed, 2017-03-15 14:19

A friend of mine is Building a pc for a friend, he asked me about Linux distros to install on it and as we were looking for one, we found that Zorin OS is a nice introduction OS for someone coming from Windows into the Penguin world. But Ultimate vs Free, What's the biggest difference? Do I need the extra software?

Any program which shares the clipboard with your Android phone?

on Windows I use Alt-C ( which works super fine but I haven't found a simple and easy alternative for Linux so far. There are also others but they all are Windows only.

I would mainly use it to browse on the PC and copy a link so I can paste it somewhere on my Android phone for sharing for example. Alt-C does it via copying something using this shortcut instead of CTRL-C and then you also have it on your phone in the clipboard immediately and vice versa with Alt-V for pasting. A similar approach would be really nice.

This might be dumb. But I kinda wanted to try something different besides Ubuntu. Particularly KDE Neon (for some reason I like the way the plasma desktop looks), what're the major differences between Ubuntu and KDE? Should I look into any other distributions?
