Ample Storage

Fill your drives with up to 32TB of documents, screenshots, spreadsheets, music, powerpoints, games, and your favorite Star Trek gifs. This may take some time.

Make Yourself Heard

While we've made it easy to learn, System76 Support, Pop!_OS developers, and online community members are here to answer any questions you may have.


Work Your Way

Pop!_OS offers comprehensive, yet simple, settings to help you achieve your most productive workflow. Customize the dock, create keyboard shortcuts, or hide buttons for a minimalist look. Choose when and how often you update, either manually or automatically.

Keep Focus Intact

Defeat Chore-ganizing

Create, make, build — and organize effortlessly as you go. Workspaces keep relevant windows together while hiding clutter. Group apps together by category or project in the App Library. Use Auto-tiling to arrange windows automatically. Spend more time on what matters with Pop!_OS.
