Pop!_OS Linux from System76 is expanding with more vendors, as HP now have a teaser up for the HP Dev One laptop. Built for developers they say, although with the kind of specs on offer it seems like it might make quite a good gaming machine too.

Could System76 be an acquisition target?

  • HP chooses Ubuntu-based Pop!_OS Linux for its upcoming Dev One laptop -- could System76 be an acquisition target?

    Rumors have been swirling lately that HP was planning to release a laptop running the Pop!_OS operating system. Today, System76's CEO Carl Richell shared on Twitter that this is absolutely happening -- a 14-inch developer-focused notebook called "Dev One." While this is good news for the Linux community overall, it is quite curious. After all, System76 doesn't just maintain the Pop!_OS operating system, it sells computers running the distribution too. In other words, HP and System76 are competitors in the hardware business.

    So, what does this tell me? Well, it is purely speculation, but as the old adage says, "where there is smoke, there is fire." And so, it is safe to assume that HP acquiring System76 could be a possibility in the future -- if this new relationship pans out at least. HP could be testing the waters with the upcoming Dev One. Keep in mind, System76 does not even build its own laptops, so we could see the company leave the notebook business and focus on desktops only -- let HP handle the Pop!_OS laptops.

    "We've got you covered. Experience exceptional multi-core performance from the AMD Ryzen 7 PRO processor and multitask with ease. Compile code, run a build, and keep all your apps running with more speed from the 16GB memory. Plus, load and save files in a flash, thanks to 1TB fast PCIe NVMe M.2 storage. We've even added a Linux Super key so shortcuts are a click away. Simply put, HP Dev One is built to help you code better," explains HP.

  • Sign of the Times: The New HP Dev One Laptop Comes With Pop!_OS

    Just we were pointing out a few weeks back that Ubuntu is clearly losing ground as a gaming distro, we can now see it’s not just the gaming world that is affected: laptops made for developers may now be switching to something else too. HP has just revealed that its new HP Dev One laptop will ship with Pop!_OS, which is developed by System76.

    Most HP computers ship with Windows, but from time to time the company has dabbled in Linux by offering models with Ubuntu or Red Hat Enterprise Linux. HP’s next Linux laptop is a little different.

    The upcoming HP Dev One is a 14 inch laptop with an AMD Ryzen processor that will ship with Pop!_OS pre-installed.

    HP is launching a Linux laptop pre-loaded with Pop!_OS, the Ubuntu-based distro created by System76.

    The collaboration, which was quietly revealed by System76 CEO Carl Richell on Twitter, is a pretty major one. It is the first time System76 has partnered with another computer company to ship their OS. It’s also the first time (to my knowledge) that a HP Linux laptop will ship with something other than vanilla Ubuntu.

    Specs for the 14-inch HP Dev One seem pretty sweet, too.

    System76 already makes Linux laptops. So, what is this all about?

    Well, this time, it will be a Linux laptop by HP, powered by Pop!_OS, i.e., the Ubuntu-based Linux distribution by System76.

    Carl Richell (System76’s Founder) made the announcement through his Twitter handle, with a link to the website that provides additional information on this.

    Almost all HP laptops are sold with Windows preinstalled; however, there are notable exceptions. We’re pleased to see a major computer manufacturer, HP, offer a Linux laptop.

    The yet-to-be-launched laptop will be a collaboration between HP and System76, a Denver-based American computer manufacturer.

    And, quite logically, the laptop will run Pop!_OS, an Ubuntu-based Linux desktop distro developed by System76. Pop!_OS uses GNOME as the desktop environment, and System76’s in-house made Pop!_OS COSMIC desktop.

    HP and System76 have come together to develop a new laptop, powered by Pop!_OS and aimed toward developers.

    The HP Dev One is a new laptop that is developer-focused and was created with the help of System76. This new laptop (which is yet to even go on pre-order), will start at $1099.00 and has a spec sheet that includes the likes of 16GB of DDR4 (@ 3200 MHz) RAM (upgradeable to 64GB), AMD Radeon graphics, a 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD, an AMD Ryzen 7 PRO CPU, and a 14" FHD anti-glare display. This is all powered by System76’s own Pop!_OS Linux distribution.

    HP has long made Linux available on its laptops, but it was never a high priority for the Silicon Valley giant. For example, if you want a top-of-the-line HP ZBook Studio G8 Mobile Workstation with Ubuntu Linux 20.04 for not quite $4,000, you can get it… in mid-October. System76, a small Linux specialty OEM, can get you a high-quality Lemur Pro 14 without as many bells and whistles for $1,359 with Ubuntu 22.04 or System76's own take on Ubuntu, Pop!_OS 22.04, by early June.

Raspberry Pi Zero Prints Giant Pictures with Thermal Receipt Printer

It’s no secret that thermal receipt printers can print much more than receipts, but this Raspberry Pi project, created by a maker known as -PJFry- on Reddit, has taken the idea to a new extreme. With the help of a Raspberry Pi Zero, they’ve coded an application to print huge, poster-sized images (opens in new tab) one strip at a time on their thermal printer. Inspiration for this project came from similar online projects where users print large-scale images using regular printers or thermal printers like the one used in this project. In this case, however, -PJFry- coded the project application from scratch to work on the Pi Zero. It works by taking an image and breaking it into pieces that fit across the width of the receipt printer and printing it one strip at a time. Then, these strips can be lined up to create a full-sized image. It is the only microelectronics project we can find that -PJFry- has shared, but it’s clear they have a great understanding of our favorite SBC to craft something this creative from scratch. According to -PJFry-, the project wasn’t created for efficiency but more for fun as a proof of concept. The result is exciting and provides an artistic take on the Raspberry Pi’s potential.

Excellent Utilities: Extension Manager - Browse, Install and Manage GNOME Shell Extensions

This series highlights best-of-breed utilities. We cover a wide range of utilities including tools that boost your productivity, help you manage your workflow, and lots more besides. Part 22 of our Linux for Starters series explains how to install GNOME shell extensions using Firefox. Because of a bug, our guide explains that it’s not possible to install the extensions using the Snap version of Firefox. Instead, you need to install the deb package for Firefox (or use a different web browser). However, if you have updated to Ubuntu 22.04, you’ll find that trying to install Firefox using apt won’t install a .deb version. Instead, it fetches a package that installs the Firefox Snap. You can install a Firefox deb from the Mozilla Team PPA. But there has to be an easier way to install and manage GNOME Shell Extensions. Read more
