Subject: Re: [DNG] HW: Which brand and model of laptop have your successfully installed Devuan on?
I bought a 2017 System76 laptop prior to Pop! creation, requesting Debian.  I had trouble connecting to wifi while on vacation a couple of years later, so went to Devuan, and it works great.
My wife bought one from them last year (Gazelle) with Pop! and asks me why it drops the wifi signal every once in a while on her.  "Systemd" I tell her, and promise that I'll install a better OS soon ;)
But the hardware seems fine with Devuan.

They have 7 different models and again will ship with their own
Ubuntu LTS variant Pop!_OS installed. Therefore Duvuan may work as

I never bought one ... I still have an old Lenevo T61 blissfully
running Crowz updated to Beowulf repositories.

Just wanted to tout a company that sells linux units.

Take care, Larry
