Zorin OS 17 Pro was just released. After going through their website and reading numerous articles about it, I don't see the details of a prominent marketing point documented anywhere, namely a list of which applications are bundled with the Zorin OS 17 Pro distro.

For example, here is a page on Zorin's website stating that their Pro version is "bundled with alternatives to over $5,000 of professional software":

But the bundled apps are not specified.

So, which applications are bundled with the Zorin OS 17 Pro distro?

    The YouTube Channel ExplainingComputers recently posted a video reviewing Zorin OS 17 (Pro), where he shows all apps preinstalled. First he quickly shows the app menu and then goes into more detail.

  • Thank you Tobi. I watched part of the video, and although I would prefer a text-based list, this is definitely a big help. Thanks again. BTW, do you happen to know the specs of the computer on which that demonstration is recorded? The speed is impressive, and everything seems to run very fluidly. Commented Jan 9 at 9:17

    Thank you. Although not a complete list, that format is very helpful. Commented Jan 9 at 9:53
  • Really though you should be asking Zorin's support for this. You're entitled to know what you're paying for (or will be paying for).

  • You know, that's a good point. I didn't think of it in those terms. Commented Jan 9 at 11:42
