  • Welcome!

    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.

Hey y'all. Just signed up, and already saying hi! Ha! No lurking for me.

I'm Jimmy. Jim. Jimbo. Whatever! I'm not picky. I've started using Pop as my primary OS on everything but my gaming machine and couldn't be happier. I use 90% used hardware and it's a great system for these machines. All of them were top-of-the-line in their day but now they're aging warhorses so squeezing a little extra out of them is really great.

Who knows. One day I might actually get a system76 machine! Until then, my old Thinkpad and Mac mini and the other stuff is just fine.

Already fixed. I installed Pop on the 128GB SSD, relegating Windows to the 240GB with the game installs.

This is an older quad-Xeon workstation (Thinkstation S20) with 12GB of RAM, and Pop flies on the SSD.
