Thanks for the information. I will have to think about installing HH myself. I understand that you provide some extra code that needs to be installed after a kernal update. Will you still be supporting HH for the 3 year time frame?

We add our System76 driver, which is a python app that adds model-specific patches to our machines.

HH will continue to be supported.
