Pop Os also based on Ubuntu choose the minimalistic way to engage its user. Claimed to aim “the real workers” who use their Linux laptop/desktop for more serious activity. I have to admit that this is one of a few Linux distro that catches my attention after (still) elementaryOS. As its web says…

Don’t worry if my links come up with an unfamiliar language, just click translate. That’s what that button does, and it should work good because it’s powered by GTranslate.
