Thinking of finally investing in a decent desktop computer, and looking at the Thelio from System76. Anyone have any experience with it or other recommendations?

I'll primarily use it for software development (writing Go, using Goland for an IDE), and routinely keeping 50+ tabs open in Chrome. Then there's just email, and Slack, which practically demands a dedicated machine right now.

On occasion, I'm doing image processing and video editing, plus some very casual gaming. So not a ton of graphics needs, though I'd like it to be snappy when I'm doing this work.

Not with them, but I'm a proud @tuxedocomputers user, and they do sell desktops.

If you already made up your mind about the brand, I'm sorry for spamming another vendor :)

@sexybiggetje @tuxedocomputers No I appreciate it! Interested in all options at this point :) I'll definitely check them out too.

@matt Well, I year ago I installed Pop OS on my 10 year old laptop and it worked well enough. It would be awesome on a new computer.

@dusiehstgutaus Good to know! I did go with Pop on one of their machines, so I'm excited to try it out!
