Why Zorin OS Lite will be sunset

Read the full document here:

TL;DR version:
Zorin OS Lite is supported until June 2029, but won't be updated further. Standard editions (Core, Pro, or Education) are now faster and work on older machines too. Standard editions offer more features and better user experience. Zorin OS can focus on updates and features by having three main editions.

You only need read the page's text to see their reasons...

Highly disagree with this statement.

Gnome uses more resources than xfce. Even if install core on older machine you will have hard times to use it.

There are quite a few threads already discussing this topic.

This is repetitious and also adds elements of confusion where meanings can be lost. As users jump from one thread to the next, this can promote misunderstandings as users comment in defense of their positions differently given different responses in different threads.

And if the ZorinGroup were to follow up on this issue; no one could hardly blame them for being confused and having great difficulty absorbing all of this at the point of impact. It is like a paint covered explosion in a kite string factory.

I am not closing this thread as a duplicate since it asks a pointed question about "why". However, none of the members have a direct answer to this other than what the ZorinGroup stated in their announcement. Aside from the ZorinGroup directly replying in this thread, I cannot see a means of it proceeding differently from the other existing threads.

Please reserve this thread to the On Topic question of "Why" (A lot of rampant speculation is probably unhelpful) and all other concerns or responses to the already existing threads.
