Although we often refer to Linux as operating systems, we all know that it is a kernel. Based on it there are hundreds of options, so it is easy for us to find one that suits our needs. Ubuntu is a very popular distribution, but more and more users unhappy with its main version are migrating to one of its flavors or to totally different distributions, such as Fedora or Manjaro. If what you are looking for is one based on Ubuntu, System76 offers us a good option that a few hours ago launched an updated version: Pop! _OS 20.04.
Pop! _OS 20.04 has arrived just a week after the Focal Fossa on which it is based. System76, who also sells hardware, says it is their most important release to date, which is not surprising because it is exactly the same as any other developer says, but it does include many new features, starting because it is an LTS release that will be supported for three years. Below you have a News list that have come along with this version.
Pop! _OS 20.04 highlights
- Linux 5.6.
- GNOME 3.36.1 (link to what's new in GNOME 3.36 here!).
- Improved keyboard navigation with new shortcuts.
- Auto-Tiling, new function to organize windows automatically.
- The new Workspaces allow us to keep relevant content together and irrelevant content out of our sight.
- Support for Flatpak has been added, including the Flathub repository.
- Hybrid Graphics support, which will improve autonomy, among other things.
- Automatic firmware updates.
- Offline system updates.
