yo I really want to switch to Linux cuz I'm dun with windows but Linux doesn't have everything like windows and it takes a bit more effort to make it work and you lose some performance

I know it isn't a typical use case for most, but when it comes to developer tools, you actually normally have to compile more things yourself on windows than on linux. The package managers on most distributions are dead simple: you type the name of the software you want and boom it is installed and ready to use. TBH the biggest problem I have with linux desktops nowadays is that they try too hard to take the "apple" route of "we know what's best for you". I use windows at home but linux at work, because in my opinion that's what they're both best for(With the exception that LibreOffice is kind of junk).

BTW, i have z270 and x399 e gaming mobo. You can patch the kernel and OpenAuraSDK to get the RGB and and OpenAura (a python program) to get addressable RGBs working. I believe the openaura RGB python program had support for thermaltake USB and corsair devices.

Sweet hardware deserves nice looking software as well. So why not customize it properly using an awesome Windows Theme and a matching wallpaper? If you feel inspired check out deviantart.com for such great resources like www.deviantart.com/dpcdpc11 Enjoy your new hardware in great style!

"... bring Linux to folks who can't be bothered to compile their kernel and hunt down repos"? Check your calendar - it's no longer 1995.

As a Linux enthusiast I will buy this pc, not because I can’t build one for my own but Linux is a philosophy, helping a new company of entrepreneurs that care for our community is really awesome and you requiere a lot of guts to do it, so I’m in with this project, tho I use Manjaro

Linux doesn't require you to compile anything, add obscure repos (repos are what the App store and Play store are, you generally don't need more, like how most people don't use F-Droid), and a common use of it is to repurpose a computer for a grandma or kid. My nephew loves his Linux laptop. Now try and get a "normie" to install Windows, hunt down drivers, etc. A reason Linux is so liked, one of many, is that if there's a problem, you CAN get down and dirty and fix it, usually very easily. Windows and Mac might not let you do something easily, and it's at least as complex and requires looking around on websites to learn the difficult, obscure commands and tools. Things break or don't work out of the box all the time, but when things work on Linux they kinda stay working. We can't even talk about out of the box customisation, Linux blows Windows out of the water, and even if you add third party tools (and disable the telemetry) it stays blown away. Linux is good. I use it as my daily driver, Windows is mostly only ever needed when work specifically chooses to use a sh*tty Microsoft application they don't need to. Or for gaming sometimes, and not everyone is an avid gamer. Don't be a victim of the baby duck syndrome. :D

The biggest problem is Gnome. The Gnome devs start working on a longstanding issue, such as application names being cut short in the app grid, but never finish and move on to a new shiny thing. The dev that was last working on the app grid issue stopped and is not working on GTK 4 stuff. The Gnome devs also keep trying to re-invent things under the hood and strip out features in the process like transparent terminal windows or sorting options in Nautilus. The constant refactoring of under-the-hood things in Gnome holds them back from improving the user experience and addressing very, very old bugs. Gnome 4 will be out before issues that have existed since the early days of Gnome 3 will be fixed.

A lot of laptops used to have a bunch of driver compatibility issues with linux back then. System76 just guarantees compatibility. It's not so much of an issue anymore.

I was just recommending this video to my friends when I realised the flashing screen behind the product from about 5:30 would take out my friend with epilepsy. I do see that it appears to be from the original product advertising, it's just that they can't watch this.

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.

Gaming. Gaming is THE ONLY THING keeping Microsoft alive. Nobody likes windows but everyone likes at least one video game they CANT play on the objectively superior Linux.

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.
