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.

Hey Jim! Welcome (and thanks for not lurking)! Definitely know how you feel... System76 makes some really slick systems!

Maybe we can change that :p I'm using it on all of my devices, including my gaming machine(s).

I'll second what @mmstick said. With the latest Steam beta, gaming on Linux works absolutely beautifully!

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.
