  • Which distro would you recommend for laptops with Nvidia gpus
  • Is verifying an installation after installing the OS possible?
    I decided to give Ubuntu Mate a go and I'm really loving it so far. I followed the verification instructions for both image corruption and ISO tampering from my existing system and save for a small problem with the keyserver that this forum post helped me solve I was able to verify everything correctly.

  • Optimus solutions for 20.04? | 2021-04-06
    Planning to switch my laptop from endeavour os (arch) to ubuntu since it seems i keep getting cut by the bleeding edge. However the only optimus manager solution I've found so far for ubuntu has been MATE optimus, and I dont plan on using anything non-gnome anytime soon. I've previously been using Optimus Manager on endeavour os which has served me perfectly.
  • Ubuntu just for Chrome | 2021-04-03
    I would suggest Ubuntu Mate, official Ubuntu flavor light on resources and very well polished, and Peppermint OS, which is still based on Ubuntu 18.04, but has an interesting desktop made of components from different DEs.
