We’re doing everything we can to make the Framework Laptop an extremely user-friendly Linux laptop for all those that decide that Linux is the right Operating System for them. As such, we’ve had to make decisions on where our focus should be and which builds/distros are going to be “officially” supported. Ubuntu LTS and Fedora is where we’ve decided to put most of our time and energy given our relationships with the developers and our ability to dial in the experience on those distributions. While we’ll continue to explore expanding our “official” support footprint as we scale as a company and build additional developer relationships, we will have to leave support for other distributions to the Community as we know everyone has their own preferences. As of late, we’ve seen some growing incompatibility issues with Pop!_OS and other distributions with Framework hardware, and we encourage everyone to continue to work with our fantastic Community to find workarounds to what are becoming common issues. Our Official Forums are a great place for these discussions, but please know that Framework staff will be pulling back from actively engaging in support given our current focus on targeted distributions to make sure that Linux “just works”.
Thanks for your understanding, and we’ll see you in the Community!
