I hope the Upgrade program will not only be from release to release but also from Core to Pro within the same release.
No no no, you can't do an upgrade from CORE to PRO, that would be a direct violation in terms, because CORE is free, comes with less layouts and APPS. And PRO costs money, and comes with extra layouts and APPS. So to put simply, it goes like this...
If you are on CORE 16, you will be able to upgrade to CORE 17, 18, 19 20, etc.
If you are on PRO, you will be able to upgrade to PRO 17, 18, 19, 20, etc.
Same way for LITE and education as well...
Well i do understand his question, a upgrade from core to pro could be added. Windows does the same thing
I didn't say it was to be done fro free... I've installed the Core to check it first before investing in the Pro version.
Now, that I like it after configuring everything to my needs, I'd expect an upgrade of the system to go smoothly without having to reinstall everything, after I paid for the Pro version...
I can confirm that we're also working to make it possible to upgrade directly from Zorin OS 16 Core to Pro (if you've purchased a copy) without needing to reinstall the system.
Thank you, and take my money then ... the upgrade feature is up and running
WOW, this is the first I am hearing about this. Thank you Azorin for answering their question regarding the upgrading, you are a super star!
Also, I have no idea how you are implementing that very specific feature of upgrade from CORE to PRO if user bought PRO, maybe you have a registration number field that a user inputs that unlocked everything?
I find this truly fascinating!
As I read the post:
I think this distinction must be noted. Just in case you are thinking a direct upgrade feature is up and running now, the above wording suggests that it is not; but is in active development.
Once again, we are in complete agreement. Sips coffee
I dont think zorin will use serial keys, i think its more a buy button and when purchased things get updated/unlocked. Like android does with alot of apps and games these days.
This gets a like cause it made me laugh, I can so agree with this sentiment. When someone does something you truly like, then its like, take my money! LOL
Well, I am still not certain on how that would work exactly for users wanting to upgrade their system. But maybe they update the OS with a unique upgrade system that has such a path to buying?
I am just waking up and my mind is already spinning in thought. HEHE
Hello IDK but I think you are someone official so can you confirm that also you are working for upgrade from zorin os 16 to 17 without data loss same like windows please?
Yes, we're working to make it possible to upgrade from Zorin OS 16 to 17 (after it's released in the future) without needing to re-install the system as well.
Thanks you so much!
Yes... I meant ... "Once the upgrade feature is up and running" ofc
When it is ready! have some patience please.
@AZorin and @zorink as you said you are working for update system in which one can update from zos 16 to zos 17 without data and apps loss, and someone told that pop os have this feature already so why it is so hard for you like you can simply just copy their source code there is no rocket science and this is a must have feature.
I think that user was me or @StarTreker
Systeemupgrade = System Upgrade
Systeemherstel = System Restore
When i have alot of issues i hit the button Herstellen (restore) and it will do a clean install of pop! os without the need of a live usb stick.
