Discussion about "How to remove 'Starred' from Nautilus

Yes, the ZorinGroup had confirmed this at the start of development back when. It also can be considered confirmed by that 22.04 is currently the only released stable (LTS) Ubuntu version.
Ubuntu 24.04 is in development and has not been released and is not even due for release prior to the projected possible Zorin OS 17 release range.

I have seen posts requesting that Zorin 17 be based on Ubuntu 24.04 on the forum, but this is an unrealistic possibility.

If they were going to do anything other than 22.04 I would expect them to switch to a Debian base. While extremely unlikely as I mentioned was just curious.

If the ZorinGroup were to switch Bases, they would have announced it. :wink:
They would not switch the base as a surprise to the users.

However, they have recently confirmed directly that they have no intention of switching to a different base at this time.


I chose not to use the sidebar. :sunglasses:

Where do they make these updates? I haven't seen anything. I would expect, as a pro user & paying for the product, I would get a newsletter or something. Haven't seen a single update since purchased.

Do you have automatic updates enabled?
I am not sure when you purchased, but since you joined the forum, there have been a minimum of three sets come down the pipe.
Which has even been verified by users asking about them on the forum.

You can check when the last update stamp was:

ls -l /var/lib/apt/periodic/update-success-stamp

Or last apt package flow:

ls -l /var/log/apt/history.log

Or run

sudo apt update

and see if anything is awaiting. I just did... and sure enough:

31 packages can be upgraded. Run 'apt list --upgradable' to see them.

31? I just upgraded yesterday! Well, ok then...
Let's see what they are:

The immutable OS is intended more for IoT devices (fridge, toaster, thermostats, embedded systems etc). It is to increase security for those devices. It is not really meant for desktops. While you could use it for desktops, it would not be a pleasant experience, though user error would be reduced.

The better question is, will Zorin follow this route in order to be included in the IoT market?

Probably not lol...

Actually, Zorin 12 is based of Ubuntu 16.04.

Should Zorin move to Debian in the future?

Thanks for catching that typo. It appears I entered 18.04 twice in the list.

There is an existing thread on this question.

Oh ahem.
That's twice I tripped over that.


No, I am asking about updates from the devs stating they are using certain things or what will be in OS 17 etc...like a newsletter. Not updates to the OS from synaptic.

AH... ok. Yes, they uh... they really do not disclose a roadmap often...

This has been raised before. Rather harshly and vehemently and with no holds barred by ummm... Me. I did that.
