Just wanted to take a moment to voice my satisfaction with this distribution. I'm a longtime Linux user from the earliest days and have used dozens of distributions over the years. This is one of the easiest and prettiest distros ever. Though most of my time is spent on the command line, I appreciate the attention to detail in the look and feel aspects.
I had a couple minor hiccups running VMWare Player and Workstation. This was solved with:
Also, when updating the Linux tools in VMWare, it asks for the root password versus the user password which is different than in other distributions. I don't normally set the root password (preferring to use sudo only) so this caused some minor confusion.
I installed this on a 2021 Dell XPS 15 with NVidia 1650 graphics. No issues that I can see and display is using the proprietary NVidia drivers without issue. It's not a super GPU but tools like Blender and TensorFlow are accelerated. On other distributions this sometimes took a couple reboots to get working.
I had to expand the page space volume. The laptop has 64G of RAM and there appears to be some requirement during sleep/hibernation. I don't know if it's an actual issue as I rarely put it to sleep.
There are some cases where third-party installers look at the /etc/os-release file. It would be nice to have a clean way to temporarily impersonate another distribution (e.g. what I think the ID_LIKE value is used for). For some tools I needed to override this (E.g., ZScaler VPN).
Anyhoo, kudos for a really great desktop experience. Everything works smoothly.
