    Here's a long, thorough and largely negative review of System76 POP!_OS, a Ubuntu-based distribution, tested in a dual-boot configuration on a laptop with Nvidia graphics, covering live session, installation and post-install use, including look & feel, networking - Wireless, Bluetooth, Samba sharing, printing, multimedia support - MP3 and HD videos, partitioning, two-part install wizard setup, package management and updates, Nvidia and other proprietary drivers, applications, smartphone support - Android, iPhone and Windows Phone, hardware support, resource utilization, performance, customization, and many problems like ISO boot troubles, severe ergonomic and readability issues with default theme and fonts, missing codecs, broken webcam, suspend & resume, other observations, and more. Take a look.
