Giving it a go
I have switched between Debian, Ubuntu and a few others for decades. Decided to give Pop a try on a i7 (home built) PC, which I thought I might use for programming, learn a new language or two.
It's working quite smoothly without major probs, but I'm not comfortable with their preference for flatpak. Things like VS Code seem to need a lot more setup and messing around, making flatpak less appealing.
Now I'm getting notifications popping up telling me that I should reinstall some of the apps I chose to install from debs as the flatpak version is the only one getting future support.
It has been a nice experience, it's easy to use and doesn't look much like a Gnome DE, I can see it being an ok Linux for some types of user, but I don't think it will stay on this box for too long.
