Pop! OS 21.10 got released today
Did you allready do the upgrade?
I will upgrade tommorow.
I have old graphic card then cannot test that. This card graphic are expensive.
Cool! Let me know when you finished it!
Installed! the upgrade went very smooth!
Nothing lost...even my manually installed nvidia driver kept installed
The bugs i had in 21.10 beta are all gone. This one looks and feels great!. I did remove the wine repo from hirsute and installed the impish one. This because i installed wine manually in Pop! Os 21.04, Pop! OS 21.10 is based on impish.
Going to install it on my wifes laptop too (HP Pavilion G7-2310ED), she has Pop! OS 21.04 too. Wonder if the wifi and card reader driver needs to get reinstalled. Wifi card needed a newer driver because it got lost in 21.04 after the kernel 5.15 update. Fixed it by following this post.
That went very smooth right?
That works very well then.
How is it comparing to Zorin ?
I did not test the latest builds of Zorin, last time i used Zorin was at the end of august/first week of september. It would not be fair to compare with a older release vs a newer one.
You could install two vm's (one with Zorin and one for POP!) and see how that goes.
I agree with this completely. That prospect does not make sense.
All good.. I don't want to try it, I don't like Gnome.hehe
Also I am happy with Xfce now
Well i don't hate GNOME but i do understand the people that complain about way to less customization compared to other DE's. For me i use my laptop only for Games, Internet, Email and some small apps. I don't customize alot because i don't want to break things and i don't really need it.
On the otherhand i do like the looks of Cinnamon, used to have it with Mint 17.x. I did customize back then to see what linux was capable of compared to windows 10 back then. I was really amazed of the things Linux could do.
Because my games didn't run well (guess because i forgot the proton/runners ?) i swapped back to Windows 10. But this year i completely switched to Linux and never turn back to Microsoft's BS OS
Wich one do you prefere?
For my needs GNOME will do just fine. Otherwise i would have changed it already
My wifes 8 years old notebook, just got a kernel upgrade to 5.15.8, everything works just fine.
