I have tried Zorin it was over a year ago and not as a dual boot ,its very smooth and clean and its getting popular, so it should get even better

Windows 8

i do like it but loaded it on pc`s and a laptop (not all together) and you only have 5 `loads`max so it contact microsoft time also the media player code expired so i think i will save it for rainy day

i haven`t done the oracle vm yet

Thanks all for the help it`s appreciated

That's probably because they are exactly the same except for the "start menu", which makes it so unbearable to use, at least for me. You can use something like Start 8 to change the menu to Windows 7 style, but then you might as well just use Windows 7 IMO.
