    I'm really a BSD guy and it's a pretty young Linux distro, initial release was only more than 2 years ago. But it looks promising lalo na sa mga gamers who wanted to try other platforms other than Windoze. For me Pros would be the availability of CUDA which is important for gamers and 3D modelers. And sa Cons naman, it's basically based on Ubuntu. Sorry Ubuntu users, but then again - it's just me

    For me Its working good. It depends kasi kung ano ba kelangan mo sa OS.
    For general purpose, steam games ok sya.

    For work/web development ok na ok.

    I used it before. Ayaw ko lang kasi ng gnome 3 kaya I switched back to Linux mint for work.
    Ayaw ko din ng snap kaya i dont use plain ubuntu.

    Kung magkakaroon ng ibang officially supported window managers ang Pop OS, specially tiling window managers either qtile or bspwm babalik ako sa Pop OS.
    Although pwede ka maginstall ng ibang window manager, kaso kelangan mo iconfigure yun on your own.

    Ang maganda sa Pop OS out of the box ok n sya agad. wala n syang masyadong configuration na kelangan.
    In terms of customization, medyo lacking sya.

    Softwares included on Pop OS are much more updated compared to linux mint.

    All in all, For an "Install and run", Ok ang Pop OS.
    Very usable in any way you may need it to be.

    But in terms of customization (visually), it doesnt have much to offer out of the box.
    But then again, thats a linux box. If you have time, you can tweak it any way you want.

    I have not used Pop OS, basta sa ngayon Debian pa din ang ginagamit ko for stability (medyo me kalumaan lang ang ibang programs dahil puro long term release ang apps dito). Limited lang kase resources (HDD space, laptop (thinkpad), internet speed) ko kaya dito muna ko sa debian. Since GNU/Linux naman yan ma cucustomize mo naman yan. i3wm lang ang window manger ko para simple.

    The thread is asking opinion about Pop OS. Not what linux distribution you use.
    Please post something related.

    If you use Debian, you should atleast provide comparison, pros and cons. He is not asking about debian but rather Pop OS.

    Wassup bro,

    I know this thread is kinda outdated, but here is my review of Pop!_OS in 2020.

    • Stable performance
    • Good for games (except if your game has EAC, then RIP)
    • Pop! Shop is da best
    • Community support (since this is Ubuntu based)
    • Mediocre customization (wala eh, GNOME eh)


    I was a Windows 10 User (specifically GHOSTSPECTRE mod) and was not happy about it. Disk util runs at 90% halos and Windows Search Indexer eats my RAM.

    Gaming is cool tho. EAC lang talaga kalaban ni Linux as it desn't support yet. Can run Dota at 50 FPS, not tried with other games.
