Windows 7: HTPC with Zorin OS 11

HTPC with Zorin OS 11

Any and all advice is necessary.

I really made a mess, I was in charge with buying a smart tv for my mothers birthday and I ended up buying a good tv, there's nothing wrong with it except for the fact that it isn't smart.

So I've been reading on the internet and I guess my best bet would be to setup a HTPC rather than buying one. And I thought I would go with Zorin OS but I'm already unsure if it would be 9 or 11.

Cheers, Boris :|

Hi,
Well I doubt 11 would be advisable since it's the newest.
So I'd guess 9 would be the most tested
Of course I have no idea what htpc is

Most would just get a ruku which can be used with windows or linux lite is actually what my nephew uses.

I think I'd go for a Fire stick and put Kodi/xbmc on it, that should cover all smart tv stuff.

I've just checked and Finland doesn't have amazon so it's not really much good.

I can always get from Deutschland.

But no really this was just a thought seems my mother is just more keen on having a TV with Smart technology than getting more stuff so I'll scratch the HTPC but leave it as a test out Zorin OS.

And with a Smart TV you can get the app for that website.

Having fun with Zorin
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...
