    Just like the old days: grouchy old timers do not like these new hardware creators (notebook computers) "ruining Linux". BTW: I'm a "boomer", aged seventy myself.
    The solo user with the desktop or mobile PC is the very last frontier that Linux has not yet touched. Both Microsoft & Apple are very far ahead of the Linux pretenders, including Android, the most successful Linux yet for the solo user.

    Watched another old time professional, "forced" to use Pop!_OS, as a replacement for professional video edits. Both Apple & Windows could not meet the performance demands of this very professional organization. The preferred software was originally designed for Centos, then ported to Apple & Microsoft. Centos was so old, that it did not handle the latest video hardware, and had an old, old Linux kernel. So the company described how they converted the application to work very well with Pop!_OS.

    I could say the same thing for the first Kia's that were just reskinned Fords, or for the current Opel Grandland X that is just a Peugeot 3008 reskin.

    Would be more interesting if you installed stock ubuntu (or whateverother distro) on the box and compared it to pop_os.

    Before I started to use it for my gaming rig...I have also been thinking: why the hell do we need a new ubuntu reskin? But there are more changes. Opting AMD or Nvidia branch during installation. Systemd bootloader. More recent firmware. Newer Lutris and gamemode out of the box. And it feels a bit more tidy.

    They same process that the Ubuntu team used to make a Debian reskin perhaps

    The same thought process that forces all OEMs to have their own distinct interfaces for everything instead of doing it in a standard way.

    Aka brand recognition and vendor lock-in (the latter applies in a very limited way on Linux, admittedly)

    Someone really has to make Heavy Metal OS. The situation is getting out of hands.

    I think this benchmark supposed to compare two os version on the very same system. Focus is on the relative performance between those two. for the rough estimation you can use the same percentage to asume the performance gain on your system.

    Hibbelharry well the idea was that people needs a way to relate to these benchmarks. putting a beast at work that has gen4 /quad channel/huge number of cores/whatever that is not present in a normal desktop (i know gen4 is in ryzen3) is not gonna help to make an idea about the benchmarks. oh well...just saying.
    its a good idea to install it and test it only if u had that many hard disks to keep formatting and trying for every benchmark.
