What would you like to see in ZorinOS 17

It would be better for ZorinOS 17 to install OnlyOffice by default (as a pre-installed application like LibreOffice)

I had issues with battery management, i have used tlp and slimbook tool but it used to interfere with bluetooth and wifi.

I've changed my mind on KDE Plasma as it is dependent on systemd remanant of elogind. I would like to see no systemd and in its place, any of the following:
Dinit, OpenRC, runit, S6, SysVinit. No Pulse Audio, just ALSA. And add MATE to the DE mix.

Do you feel like you are being painted into a corner?

A small concession in the name of convenience is not necessarily bad though. Both Gnome and KDE bring a lot of goodness with themselves, and dismiss them out of the use of one particular component seems a bit excessive (I imagine Gnome has the same dependency you mentioned about KDE?)

But speaking of desktop environments, I would like to see an option to toggle between floating and tiling windows, similar to how popOS does it. I mostly prefer floating but the idea of maximizing efficient use of screen is very attractive for those times when there's too many things going on at once.

The main thing I want added is GNOME 44. I've gotten into customisation recenty, and I think that GNOME 44 would be good.

That's plainly wrong. As much I like Gnome, Gnome 40+ are less customizable than Gnome 3+

If you're into customization, perhaps you should give KDE a spin, though it's less stable in my experience but nice to tinkering with the desktop settings.

Do you mean gnome 3+?

Aye, a typo.

Is there a way to change my DE on Zorin OS without breaking it?

You can install KDE on Zorin OS, but it's harder/almost impossible to remove it completely. Instead I suggeset Download KDE Neon and fire it up with VM. Then you can see if it's something for you.

Note: It can takes days to perfection a KDE desktop - There's so many combinations. And don't forget to install "Latte" to get a crispy dock.

What can't be done on 40+ that can be on gnome 3.38?

You can't custom theme the applications/Windows anymore. You'll get this instead Dark or light. Though you can change its colors by Gradience, but it will be break the default dark/light default themes.
