Would you pay USD $2.60 per Month for your operating system?
That is less than you spend each month on Junk food. And the junk food is not even as useful.
When we take a Hard look at some of the Big n' Free products out there from Firefox, Google, Amazon or Microsoft, we see that free is not free.
When you install Microsoft Windows - you pay for it. They have just done away with the initial bill. And when you buy a computer with Windows pre-installed, you pay dearly for it. Because the manufacturer or dealer charges you for the copy of MS Windows and License at a high markup, the Installation fee and servicing.
Money is being used and it must come from somewhere.
From target market advertising to spyware to selling your data.
Being able to breathe a sigh of relief and get away from all that is beyond price. Or is it?
For the approximate amount of two and a half US Dollars per month - you can spend far, far less on a Solid Operating System.
I want to be clear: I am just a member of this forum. I am not a member of the ZorinGroup, a developer nor do I speak for them.
As a member of the World, I do know that when you buy cheap, you get cheap results and you Spend More. You spend more because cheap breaks faster or even does not work at all and you must buy again.
Each Release of Zorin OS is not an upgrade. It is a New Release. The Next in the line. You would not buy a car one year and then when the Latest New Release Model is introduced, demand it for free or discounted just because you bought a car once, would you? You understand that you still must Pay For the New Release.
If your employer decided to not pay your wages because he already paid you once, would you consider that fair and reasonable?
The Zorin Group is continuously working on Zorin OS. From maintaining and updating the current release to work on the Next Release.
By choosing Zorin OS Pro, you make this possible.
