Pop!_OS is an Ubuntu-based Linux distribution featuring a custom GNOME desktop. Pop!_OS is designed to have a minimal amount of clutter on the desktop without distractions in order to allow the user to focus on work. The distribution is developed by Linux computer retailer System76.
Pop!_OS gets out of your way, maximizing screen real estate for your projects and communications. Organize your workflow with advanced window management, workspaces, and keyboard shortcuts for navigation.
Pop!_OS encrypts your installation by default and is the only distro that enables full-disk encryption out-of-the box from System76. A unique and private encryption key is generated during setup after you receive your computer.
Privacy is precious. Pop!_OS does not collect or store any information from user installations. Minimal OS and hardware version data is used (but not stored) to provide firmware and software updates and connectivity verification.
Pop!_OS also features automatic firmware updates on System76 laptops helping keep your pc secure and reliable.
