Okay, after running POP!_OS on hardware for the last week, it's awesome!!
Automatic updates actually works very smoothly. UEFI compatibility is excellent. Laptop Nvidia support out of the box. Even my Ryzen system plays nicely with no work on my part. Just boot it up, install, and it works. Craziness.
I gotta say. The Ambiance theme looks alright in Gnome 3
Found another good one that needs no modification:
“Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.”
Ever Linux user should be a libertarian.
Why would we support freedom in the private sector, but control from the government?
Hm. Disabling UEFI improves system stability significantly.
All-in-all, quite impressed and looking forward to what AMD can pull off with their next iterations. Also hoping all those little bugs get ironed out.
So Ubuntu on Ryzen is a little qwerky. With the microcode installed sleep settings sometimes work and sometimes don't.
But after a couple weeks of use, that's the only complaint. VMs work great in both VMware and VirtualBox. Performance is very smooth with no unexplainable spikes in usage or thermals. And it's surprisingly cool. It can get up to 60% usage on all cores with a couple VMs going before it starts ramping up the stock cooler.
I've heard mixed feelings about Linux support for the two major graphics platforms. Since AMD has been incorporating their drivers into the kernel they've been my pick. nVidia becomes a hassle when the competition does the work for me.
"Want bleeding edge, go Fedora or Arch."
Why does no one know that OpenSUSE has most major updates weeks before everyone else?
Gnome updates? Yeah, almost immediately.
Kernel updates? Definitely immediately.
Has everyone forgotten they host the OBS for these projects?
Microsoft <3 Linux
Microsoft <3 Windows SQL on Linux.
So... In other words... Linus won.
