    I don't understand why Zorin's latest version is based on Ubuntu 18.04. A new LTS version of Ubuntu came out five months ago.

    The Zorin OS 15 series is supported until 2023, the same length of time as the maintenance updates for Ubuntu 18.04. Considering all the in-house Zorin components included and the amount of work involved there would be little point in trying to convert it all now using 20.04 instead.

    Well, Linux Mint follows the latest Ubuntu LTS, so it can be done.

    Zorin 16 will be based on 20.04 with a planned release at the end of the year.
