Pop!_OS - any opinions?

Post by muffybean »

Been looking a the distro Pop!_OS and wondered what the forum thinks of it. I was considering running it in VM but is it worth my trouble in my quest to find out more about Linux. Look forward to opinions of what I am considering. TIA

It's another Ubuntu based distro using Gnome 3 so it's probably not unlike Mint Cinnamon. If you really want to work on your Linux chops try debian or arch in a VM.

I tried a Live Session of the latest release, and wasn't that impressed, but it was pretty smooth and ran quite well. Not enough there to entice me to switch.
