    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,

NVidia Driver version question

Hey guy's,
Curious question, the current working version for the NVidia driver is 460.80 but ours is 460.73.01. When I run sudo apt install [I]nvidia[/I]-[I]driver[/I]-460 it says that I have the newest version. So, I am curious as to why that is? FYI, I'm not interested in forcing an upgrade or anything, I am seriously just curious.

Thanks...

Unless you install something other than system76-driver-nvidia, it's the default in-house NVIDIA driver packaged by System76 for Pop!_OS. To my knowledge, they use the "latest stable driver". Meaning, they don't usually update it unless it's thoroughly tested. Unlike many hobby OS, System76 have a responsibility to their hardware customers with Pop by supplying the OEM operating system as stable as possible. That is where they are at with most apps and tech. I once used the term "the extremely stable edge", to describe how they're not quite "bleeding edge", but keep packages as new as possible with thorough testing.
