#Solus is the only OS listed under Beginner-friendly in the latest @LinusTech video that is not based on Ubuntu (or in fact, based on any other operating system).
Rest of the video is basically "how to do xyz under PopOS" which is eh, but hey, progress.
Side-note for new users, ReplaySorcery is in the Solus repo and is IMO a better alternative to Shadowplay. No needing to remember to launch OBS Studio, no custom compilation of separate software to act as a source, etc.

Solus 4.3 Released with Linux Kernel 5.13, KDE Plasma 5.22, and GNOME 40.2
Less than 24 hours until the #Solus 4.3 stream!
Last batch of release testing ISOs have been sent out to @Solus OpenCollective members in the Release Testers, Beta Testers, and Crew tiers. Hoping to see kernel 5.13.1 out soon, after that we are ready to go for a new release. I have everything prepped already 🙂
It took some work with patching NVIDIA drivers, but 5.13.0 is now in the unstable repo! If you are a brave Solus user and would like to test, I wrote up some details on our forums. Otherwise, assuming no gremlins, everyone else will get it this Friday.
Currently cooking Linux 5.13 for @Solus. No ETA on when it'll land in unstable (then stable), varies based on rebuilds and testing, but excited for all the new hardware support! 💪
Not impressed with Windows 11 and thinking about switching over to Linux? Addicted to World of Warcraft? Well with the power of Lutris, Proton, and the Ajour addon manager in the @Solus repository, you can keep that addiction and not have to compromise on your WoW classic or retail experience!

Like watching paint dry? Then do I got the stream for you! Doing the Solus sync in about 45min and will be streaming it, plus some various stuff (blog post writing, artwork checking, branding package updates, etc. in prep for Solus 4.3, live!
Just uploaded the new weekly ISO snapshots for Beta Testers and Crew tiers for those on the #Solus OpenCollective. Emails will be sent out momentarily.
All snapshots have new intel-microcode, kernel 5.12.10 and Mesalib 21.1.2. Other change may vary based on edition. Enjoy!
