@sa0bse ah such a good question. The market has really jacked this one up. Technically 2k is both 2560x1440 and 2048x1080 but generally 2560x1440 is referred to as QHD2K or Quad HD because it's not confusing enough. Or you could get UltraHD at 3840x2160 which isn't quite 4k which is 3840x2160 or 4096x2160. It's a mess with no standard answer.
@whitmer1988 you should be able to hit escape and it will show you what’s hung. I’ve seen certain SystemD processes that hang in other distros and generally can be turned off or fixed. Other option is to try shutdown from terminal to see errors.
@dasgeek My Ryzen 9 3900X is on the way. Good to know I can use Pop!_OS if nothing else while waiting for proper patches to land. If only they had a KDE version I would probably use them full time.
@dasgeek They are pretty good about implementing fixes for all kinds of stuff. A lot of the upstream gnome performance fixes that aren’t in other distros have been implemented as well. I’m constantly impressed by those folks. Used to think it was just Ubuntu with a pretty theme but they are consistently knocking it out out of the park.
@lifeofdan this is a pretty cool idea. I will add it to the list, thank you!
We’re launching a class action lawsuit against AT&T for repeatedly breaking the law by selling its customers' real-time location data and misleading them about those sales.

@system76 Huge shout out to Pop!_OS. As we wait for AMD patch to roll out for new 3rd gen Ryzen CPUs. @system76 went ahead and fixed the issue. No other Linux distro I tried booted. But Pop!_OS setting the bar high. fixing it before AMD even could. Impressed. #linux
Valve: latest Linux gaming work boosting AMD Vulkan framerates up to 44% (!)
Even in its infancy, this new shader compiler is resulting in a 44% framerate boost on certain AMD graphics cards.
In one particular DX11 game, it's even beating Windows even though the title isn't to be played natively on Linux (but via Proton / Steam Play).

@DirtyDean I use Arch and openSUSE Tumbleweed. I will be waiting for the BIOS update that’s supposed to come in a few days.
