Pop!_OS 19.10 is now available to download and install.
Pop!_OS 19.10 (as you won’t be surprised to hear) is based on the latest Ubuntu 19.10 release.
But that’s not all.
This update to the Ubuntu-based Linux distribution, which is available to ship preinstalled on System76 range of laptops and desktop PCs, has a couple of homegrown improvements up its sleeve, too.
Pop!_OS 19.10 Features
One of the ‘headline’ features of Pop!_OS 19.10 is support for a system-wide dark theme.
The new dark mode is said to use ‘higher contrast colours using a neutral colour palette’, and provides a ‘more consistently dark aesthetic’ throughout the desktop. It includes both GTK and GNOME Shell theme.
This, and other notable changes in Pop!_OS 19.10 include:
- Pop GTK theme rebased on to Adwaita
- New ‘dark mode’ option
- Updated sound effects
- Support for offline upgrades

System76 choose to not keep omg! informed about anything they’re up to (and largely haven’t since 2013 🤷🏻♂️; as is their wont) I’m nonetheless pre-programmed to root for projects that are “in our corner” so to speak.
The Ubuntu-based Pop!_OS distro has struck a chord with many in the Linux community since its arrival back in 2017 — and more people using Linux, regardless of flavour, is something I love to see!
