• Pop!_Planet is still very much under development. Data for the wiki is being sourced from the Arch Linux and Ubuntu wikis, along with a bunch of completely unique content specific to Pop!_OS, and sourcing, converting and updating that content takes time; please be patient.

  • 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.

    Support Pop!_Planet

    Thank you for your time,

Petition to HBO: Re-enable Linux support for HBO Max

Hi everyone,

I wanted to ask for your help with a petition I just started.

Ars Technica ran a story a few days ago saying that HBO had enabled a setting in the DRM software that protects content on its HBO Max service, preventing users of conventional Linux distributions from playing anything back. I say "conventional" because Chromebooks are unaffected, despite the fact that they technically run Linux. As an HBO Max viewer and a Linux user, I immediately went to the site to corroborate the article. Sure enough, nothing plays.

I just created a petition to raise awareness of the issue and to put pressure on HBO. Please sign and share with other fellow Linux enthusiasts. I'm hoping that if I can get a few to several hundred people to sign it, I can start alerting tech sites and other media outlets.

Thanks in advance!

Luke
