    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time,

Hello everybody!

My name is Felix and I'm a 21 years old computer science student from Bavaria, Germany.

I've discovered Pop!_OS only a few weeks ago and decided to give it a try when 19.04 came out. And what can I say, I'm really happy with it. Great design, super simple installation and finally a proper integration for switchable NVidia graphics! Saying that, Pop has already become my daily driver distro for my uni laptop which means I'll mostly use it for note taking and programming. And I'm also looking forward to installing and setting it up on my desktop, when I find the time to, where I'll use it for programming and gaming.

While that means I'm super new to Pop!_OS, I've had my experiences with quite some other distros like Manjaro, Arch, Fedora, Solus, Elementary and of course Ubuntu.
Over the years however, none of those distros really satisfied me. Pop seems to be the best mix for me and I'm looking forward to what the developers will come up with next :D
