So........ that kernal update

will zorin 17 and 16.3 update too the new kernal when it comes out?

They will update the kernel incrementally, as is always the case.
Every user has the right and option to risk installing a later kernel ahead of the Zorin OS Ugrades.

The ZorinGroup will release kernel versions as they are vetted or patched; not rush to the latest one. Newer kernels can carry newer bugs and regressions and Zorin OS is not a rolling release or Testing Distro.
It is intended to be a user friendly distro for all GnuLinux users and a stepping stone into GnuLinux for users coming from Windows OS or MacOS.
It needs to use a kernel that is solid and reliable on a wide range of machines, not just the Newest Hardware.
