Discussion on: 🐧 Why I switched back from Windows to Linux (Arch/Manjaro)

I like how smoothly interface works with Pop. It really feels faster than anything I've tried (maybe with an exception of Deepin). However I am unable to compile on Debian derivative fingerprint scanner driver ( while on Manjaro those are readily available AUR packages.
Hence compared to Windows the only things that do not work under Manjaro are: hibernation (but that stopped working under Windows as well with BIOS update probably), freefall HDD protection and LED indicating mic status.
BTW for AMD Wani both Pop and Manjaro loaded by default the same AMDGPU version.

Yeah the fingerprint scanner on the t480 is also not working for me :/
