Installed Pop 18.10 2 months ago on my MSI GS63VR 6RF.
My windows 10 pro installation was okay but I always wanted to have a good Linux distro installed.
Disabled secure boot as required, installed without issues.
Booted directly with the Nvidia GTX 1060 which amazed me very much!
No other linux distro works on my machine because other distro's try to boot on the Nvidia card while I also have the Intel one and then causes kernel panic.
Pop! Does it great with their power management.
The only issue I have is the screen tearing while on desktop with Nvidia.
Found some software that gets my RGB keyboard light working.
I also have Thunderbolt 3 and I have an eGPU with a GTX 1070 but I did not get it working yet (didn't try much).
I upgraded to 19.04 without problems but found a big mess to the "new" icon theme.
Found this site and applied the classic theme.
One big plus is that since Pop! is installed, I didn't use an external mouse.
The trackpad on the MSI GS63VR is so bad on windows... SO BAD.
It's a joy to use my trackpad on Pop!_OS.
As a last note, I found out that my iPhone's apps can be accessed from Pop!_OS.
I can browse my apps that are allowed to share files. Even Windows can't do that without iTunes...

Wow, now that is interesting.

Is that the same Mac mini as before? https://pop-planet.info/forums/threads/post-your-rig.31/#post-241 . Any changes or improvements?
It is. I upgraded it to 16GB of RAM lately and that improved performance. I decided to to a fresh install as well, and not sure what caused it, but Wayland is far better than it used to be. It used to have a choppy mouse arrow and animations would stutter. Now it's buttery smooth!

Not sure if it's improvements to Wayland or the RAM...

I'm certain both are playing a part. I had a look in Wayland, but I quit quick smart because Alacritty was behaving horribly.
I'd like to give Alacritty a try actually. I'm just having trouble configuring my typefaces on it. I'm a Terminus man.

How has that performed? Any issues or smooth sailing?

It is ok on pop os LTS but freezes on 19.04.
Have you tried 18.04 LTS? Sometimes if the newer releases are wonky, the LTS versions can give you the stability you seek. They lack the "up-to-dateness" but they can give you better solidity.
