System76’s Pop!_OS Linux Distro to Get the Volume Improvements from Ubuntu 17.10

It would appear that System76 devs noticed the Ubuntu Desktop team working on porting the volume setting that lets laptop users raise the volume over the 100% limit using the keyboard volume buttons to the upcoming Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) operating system, so they’ll add that to Pop!_OS, too. In the meantime, work continues on the new installer for Pop!_OS, which System76 engineer Jeremy Soller recently simplified by removing the timezone slide and changing the order of prompts, so that it takes less time for newcomers to install the Pop!_OS distro on their personal computers.
