Although there has already been at least one previous system, from now on we will see many releases of operating systems based on Disco Dingo, an operating system that we remember was released on April 18. This is the case of Pop! _OS 19.04, the latest version of this operating system that is based on Ubuntu 19.04 and uses a GNOME graphical environment. Among other functions, Pop! _OS uses a version of GNOME with a remarkable visual appeal.
Among the novelties that come along with the new version, we have a new icon theme and support for new hardware for your machines, as well as the latest updates to your software package. The new icon theme covers both applications, files and folders that, although they use their own image, have been based on the guidelines set by one of the most used graphical environments in the Linux world. System76, who develops Pop! _OS, says they hope to work with the GNOME project so that more applications support the new theme.
Pop! _OS 19.04 arrives with new icon theme
Other novelties included are:
- New Slim Mode option that reduces the thickness of the header bars of the application windows to show more content.
- Dark mode. This and the previous option can be activated from the Appearance menu in Settings.
- New installation option that allows users to reinstall the operating system without losing personal data stored in the personal (/ home) folder or existing users. The option is not available to users upgrading.
- Linux Kernel 5.0.
Interested users can download the new version from here!. Right now have the latest version (19.04) and the LTS (18.04), both in Intel / AMD or NVIDIA versions. Installation instructions are available here!. As an interesting fact, the Ubuntu boot disk creation tool or the KDE one do not offer the possibility of creating it. You have to use UNetbootin or burn it to DVD. As has always been said, no one is perfect.
