System76 Unveils First Release of Pop!_OS Linux Distro, Based on Ubuntu 17.10

Based on the recently released Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) operating system, the first release of Pop!_OS Linux was focused on offering System76 users a refreshed and entirely new GNU/Linux desktop experience. The distro comes built-in with all the drivers you need for your System76 computers, along with numerous other improvements and small tweaks. Following on the footsteps of Ubuntu 17.10, Pop!_OS Linux uses latest GNOME release as default desktop environment and the same internals of the Artful Aardvark release, such as the Linux 4.13 kernel, accelerated video playback for Intel GPUs, out-of-the-box USB audio and Bluetooth support, as well as the extended driverless printing support to Wi-Fi Direct and Mopria devices.
