i had my laptop for about 2 years and I almost gave up on installing anything that is Unix. Nothing seems to install, and if they do they crash and if they don’t crash they just hang.
I saw this and I thought ill give it a try this year. I must say I am impressed thus far. Actually i am surprised it installed as I expected it to fail on my laptop which defeated all Linux distros last year.
I have ASUS GL753VD 17 inch gaming laptop which defeated all Unixes, until today (i must admit and to be fair i last tried Linuxes, all of them, last year). This one installed flawlessly and i expected to fail at the graphics as this system has 2 graphics cards, an Intel and an Nvidia GTX 1050. it failed on Nvidia testing but worked well on Intel.
Still have problem with sound. IT detected the realtek chip but no sound.I see the icons and the mixer and look fine but no sound coming out.
It has a jack for headphone but if I plug anything it just booms loudly.
Everything else is working just fine including wifi, and 2 screens configurations.
i installed it on an external SSD drive and boots just fine. This setup also defeated many Linuxes and FreeBSDs in the past.
I do understand it is still work in progress nd few things are still missing and the UI still needs polishing.
trackpad still not working, but no matter i use a mouse anyway.
The OS is super fast on my laptop.
But overall, i would say good work and I am sure it will improve as we go forward.
Finally I can carry my favourite OS with me
Good work guys.
