“We’re not building an alternative to Windows and Mac or an operating system for mainstream users. We’re developing Pop!_OS for jobs where Linux excels which coincides with where the System76 customer base resides. That’s computer science fields of artificial intelligence, engineering, IOT, devops and other edge technologies.”

I can dig that, wish it would have taken a more Endless-like approach to image based updates but it's a good start.

OMG that set of CLI commands, how is anyone supposed to remember that? 
Steam is Now Available as a Flatpak

I got a new laptop for my new job and I ended up trying Fedora and Sid over the weekend just to see how they worked before settling on Ubuntu GNOME 17.04. Wow these guys did a great job.

First off, my wireless wouldn't work in debian because they don't include the intel firmware, and then I had to manually make a .fonts.conf to get font rendering right and it still looked like crap, never mind having to go get normal Firefox, etc. I ain't got time for this.

Fedora was a bit better, the Wayland session just worked, and it was fine other than not having a ton of software. flatpak integration was disappointing, I would have thought it would have been easy to just add on all the flatpak packages they link to from their package page. Nope, all broken, have to use CLI. This is one place where EndlessOS is way ahead of the pack.

Ubuntu GNOME was also the only one I could get to work with extensions.gnome.org ootb because Debian's browsers have some policy to not allow users to install extensions at all. On Fedora I had to add some 3rd party repository to make it work with chrome(!)

Ubuntu GNOME also had a nice intro wizard thing the first time I launched it, so I was able to add my google accounts and blam, all my calendars and notifications just started working. Wayland session seems to be working well so far.


All three seemed to have no problems with suspend, which is nice.
