    I have one with a Ryzen 9 12 core AMD processor. I dislike the default Pop OS desktop environment immensely. It's too much like a tablet, which does not make sense when you have a desktop. This is also my major complaint of Ubuntu though.
    I have had no problems with sound though. I regularly build OS's on it and have 100% load on all threads with no sound at all.

    Pop! user here, not on a system76 rig. Really considering buying one of their laptops that switch between RTX and integrated graphics.
    I like their " No exceptions" approach, giving a real keyboard, rgb backlights, system integration, build quality, etc. I often find laptops have one thing I want, but not all of it, and it right about checks every box.
    I will say I don't LUKS encrypt my drives though, mostly because of the pain in the butt workaround when it goes wrong;
    And how possible it is to go wrong.
    You'll only do that once to save your 1 byte encrypted drive to never do it again. Additionally, gparted used to not be able to mount luks partitions, neither could disks, in ubuntu or gnome disks, but the problem has since resolved itself with an update at some point.
    Overall, very satisfied.

    The Linux is interesting but I think in my household only my dad would make use of this pc, and even then... he'd install windows because as Linus said... the industry standards don't have Linux versions, and he outright REFUSES to work with nonstandard software (but makes an exception for Cakewalk Sonar as he HATES Pro Tools, preferring to use Adobe Audition instead). Still, the woodgrain with matte black metal and bezled corners of the case are something that appeals to his "newfound" hipster lifestyle.

      No, they've recently got new warehouse and production space and taken on new staff. Doing quite well actually. Since Hawaii announced they'll no longer be shipping laptops with Windows in the east many OEMS have started putting out more Linux machines, seems they're on the up.

    Glad to see more Linux coverage in this channel. A pre-built Linux desktop from the ground-up (sorta..?) is a very neat concept. I'm just concerned about the noise, temps, and the massive pricetag...

  • TheMooskyFox

    just the fact that System76 consists of people truly passionate for the project rather than a bunch of workers doing *something* on an OS completely justifies the price tag for me. (And the fact that it's a fully linux-compatible makes it a perfect computer for me.)

    I''ve been running Pop OS now for six months or so, not on System 76 hardware, but it runs perfect! Think it one of the best distros out there for us who don't have the time to tinker that much.

    A lot of LInux distros are a lot more user friendly than they used to be these days. I personally use Mint, which I've also converted my uncle to. He is absolutely a "normie" and almost never uses Windows anymore. The live boot image on the internal storage is very handy but this thing is pretty niche, I think.

    Pop! OS has become very popular in the Linux community. Their fan-base on the hardware side is growing as well and rightly so, they have great support and make a quality product from every review I have watched. To your points about compiling the kernel etc. those days are long gone, most distros are a breeze to install and set up. Very good and fair review.

    What's so bad about windows? Honestly? I've heard so many people say windows is slow or clunky or just bad but nobody's explained their problem with it. I've never noticed that. I like Linux, but I've only used it sparingly. I don't see a reason to move off windows for it though. Windows is where most development for programs is focused, that might be an unfortunate fact but it's true. It's got lots and lots of options.

    I've been a "normal person Linux user" for years and years. It's a lot more accessible than people seem to think. Even after all this time, I don't know how to do very much in the terminal. I've never really needed to with Mint and Ubuntu, which are my primary distros. I think it's great that it's finally making it out to a wider audience and coming installed on prebuilds and laptops. There's tons of good reasons to use Linux even if you're not a techie, and honestly, I wouldn't go back.
